Summary
Abstract: The sedimentological, chemical and isotopic characteristics of sediment cores from three slightly saline to hypersaline lakes (Highway, Ace and Organic Lakes) and two marine inlets (Ellis Fjord and Taynaya Bay) in the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica have been examined.
Sections of the cores deposited in marine environments are characterised by uniform, regularly laminated, fine grained, organic-rich ... View entire text
