Late Pleistocene and Holocene climate of SE Australia reconstructed from dust and river loads deposited offshore the River Murray Mouth
The terrigenous component of deep-sea sediment core MD03-2611, offshore South Australia, has been examined for mineralogical, geochemical and isotopic tracers to reconstruct the deglacial and Holocene climate on the adjacent southeastern Australian continent. The provenance of the terrigenous component is constrained by using a combination of clay minerals, conservative elements like rare earths (REEs) and Sr- and Nd isotopic ratios. From 17 to 5 ka BP, the sediment signature is dominated by...[Show more]
