Sedimentological investigations of sediment profiles from the continental slope off South Orkney Islands, supplement to: Fütterer, Dieter K; Grobe, Hannes; Grünig, Sigrun (1988): Quaternary sediment patterns in the Weddell Sea: relations and environmental conditions.

Sediment patterns such as texture, composition, and facies from three selected areas of the Antarctic continental margin of the Weddell Sea are discussed in relation to environmental variations of the Quaternary hydrosphere and kryosphere. Advance and retreat of ice shelves as well as oscillations in sea ice coverage are reflected by particular sediment facies. The distribution of ice-rafted detritus tracks the Antarctic Coastal Current, and the Weddell Sea Bottom water contour current can be recognized...
