Lieselotte Diester
The sandfraction of the sediment was analysed in five cores, taken from 65 m water depth in the central and eastern part of the Persian Gulf. The holocene marls are underlayn by aragonite muds, which are probably 10-11,000 years old.1. The cores could be subdivided into coarse grained and fine grained layers. Sorting is demonstrated by the following criteria:With increasing median values of the sandfraction- the fine grained fraction decreases within each core;- the median...
