Organic biomarker compound concentrations in sediments from DSDP Hole 96-619, supplement to: Jasper, John P; Gagosian, Robert B (1993): The relationship between sedimentary organic carbon isotopic composition and organic biomarker compound concentration.

John P Jasper & Robert B Gagosian
A study of organic biomarker compounds which could serve as tracers of terrigenous and marine sedimentary organic matter sources was performed on samples from a 208.7 m hydraulic piston core hole (DSDP Hole 619) from the hemipelagic Pigmy Basin in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Organic carbon-normalized concentrations of total long chain (C37-C39) alkenones and some individual C27-C29 desmethyl sterols were determined to be useful proportional indicators (tracers) of preserved marine and terrigenous organic carbon,...
