[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Sterols in a core from the Schollaert Drift, Gerlache Strait,
Antarctica can be used successfully to determine the ages of sediment
horizons. It has, however, not been possible to extend this work to
numerous samples of interest from the Greenpeace Trough and the region
of the Larsen Ice Shelf. Of 38 samples analyzed, 26 contained less
than 0.05 ppm sterols (ppm = ... View entire text
