Trace element distribution in latest Pliocene sapropels in the Mediterranean Sea, supplement to: Arnaboldi, Michela; Meyers, Philip A (2007): Trace element indicators of increased primary production and decreased water-column ventilation during deposition of latest Pliocene sapropels at five locations across the Mediterranean Sea.

Michela Arnaboldi & Philip A Meyers
Compositions of productivity- and redox-sensitive trace-metals in two Upper Pliocene sapropel sequences from western Mediterranean ODP Sites 974 and 975 and eastern Mediterranean Sites 964, 969, and 967 provide information about the conditions leading to sapropel deposition. Except at Site 975, closest to the Atlantic Ocean, all sapropels display elevated element/Al ratios for Ba, Re, Cd, Mo, U, Cr, Cu, V, and Zn. High total organic carbon (TOC) concentrations and Ba/Al ratios point to increased...
