Terrigenous-n-alkane input in the South China Sea:high-resolution records and surface sediments

Pelejero, Carles


Molecular abundances of n-nonacosane are reported for a suite of 44 surface sediments and four deep sea cores distributed throughout the South China Sea (SCS), covering the last 220 ky at different time resolutions. The patterns of glacial to interglacial variability of the concentrations of this terrigenous marker are parallel for all cores, taking values linearly inversely correlated to the UK′37 index sea surface temperatures (SST), with high concentrations during cold-glacial intervals and...[Show more]
