Age determination of sediment cores from the Shelf Edge off Mauritania, Northwest Africa, supplement to: Park, Soo Chul; Fütterer, Dieter K (1989): The sedimentary record of late glacial changes on cores from the shelf edge off Mauritania, northwest Africa. Marine Geology, 89(3-4), 363-368

Soo Chul Park & Dieter K Fütterer
The impact of late glacial changes on the sedimentary record was investigated in two long vibracores, collected from the shelf edge off Mauritania, northwest Africa. Lithology and radiocarbon dates indicate that the sedimentary sequences were mainly controlled by sea-level changes on the shelf. The upper Pleistocene sequence is characterized by deposition in coastal environments, while the Holocene sequence represents deposition in shelf environments. During low sea level, much sediment was supplied to the present outer...
