Carbon and Carbonate Analyses of Marine Sediments, Global Ocean
Entry ID: CANADA_GSC_CarbonAnalyMarineSed

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set contains chemical analyses of total and organic carbon levels
which are used to determine inorganic carbon levels in sedimentary samples.
The samples were collected as part of research cruises conducted by, or for,
the Geological Survey of Canada (Atlantic).These analyses are conducted to
study sedimentation rates, to understand carbon content of sediments, and to
draw conclusions about productivity.
