A late Quaternary sedimentary record of steryl alkyl ethers from offshore southeastern Australia

Lopes dos Santos, Raquel A; De Deckker, Patrick; Damste, Jaap S Sinninghe; Schouten, Stefan


Steryl alkyl ethers (SAEs) have been reported from marine sediments ranging from Holocene to Lower Cretaceous and their production has been linked to upwelling of cold, nutrient-rich water. However, the lack of continuous stratigraphic records for them has complicated validation of the precise connection of their production, sedimentary distribution and survival to climatic conditions. Here, we report an SAE record that spans the last ca. 135ka from a core taken offshore southeastern Australia...[Show more]
