Excess 210Pb inventories and fluxes along the continental slope and basins of the Gulf of Papua
Sediment samples were collected from continental slopes and marginal basins in the Gulf of Papua and analyzed for excess 210Pb to elucidate transport processes of fine-grained particles to this region. Estimated excess 210Pb fluxes of 1.0-12.8 dpm cm-2 a-1 were derived from measured seabed inventories. Highest sediment accumulation rates (0.28-0.35 cm a-) were measured along the northeastern shelf edge, and they decrease in seaward directions and along isobaths to the southwest. The excess...[Show more]
