Lieselotte Diester-Haass
Seven cores from the West African continental margin in 12-18° N have been investigated by means of a coarse fraction analysis.Four of the seven cores contain allochthonous material: turbidites and debris flow deposits. The source of the allochthonous material is in about 300-600 m water depth. The age of the slide induced debris flow deposits is at the end of oxygen isotope stage 2. One debris flow deposit is covered by a turbidite (core GIK13211-1).The...
