Biogenic sediment history from diatom remains in cores along Wilkes Land
Entry ID: ASAC_1216

Abstract: Preliminary data set contains details of cores processed (eg. sample name/interval, dry weights, reactions, notes) and the methodology used. The future data set will document diatoms observed and counted for each sample. This project also has links to ASAC project 1044 (ASAC_1044), the Wilkes Land Glacial History (WEGA) project.

WEGA cores from both the continental shelf (PC7,11,12) and slope ... View entire text
