Summary
Abstract: Stable isotope, sedimentological, and radiocarbon data from cores at ~3 km
water depth on the Blake Ridge, western subtropical North Atlantic, reveal the
history of deep water ventilation since the last glacial maximum (LGM). Bulk
sediment accumulation rates varied locally by a factor of 2 under the
influence of bottom currents in this sediment drift environment, but the sand
flux, mostly ... View entire text
