Late Quaternary terrigenous sediments from the Murray Canyons area, offshore South Australia and their implications for sea level change, palaeoclimate and palaeodrainage of the Murray-Darling Basin

Gingele, Franz; De Deckker, Patrick; Hillenbrand, Claus-Dieter

Description

Two sediment cores from the deep-sea Murray Canyons area, south of Kangaroo Island, Australia were investigated for quantity and composition of terrigenous material. Spanning the last 175 ka, terrigenous matter from these cores provides evidence for changes in sea level and palaeoclimate of the adjacent Australian continent. Located offshore Australia's major river system, the Murray-Darling, the sediment cores record varying inputs of suspended river clays. High input prevails during glacial...[Show more]
