Grain-size distributions of the terrigenous fraction of two deep-sea sediment cores GeoB3375-1 and MD96-2094, supplement to: Stuut, Jan-Berend W; Lamy, Frank (2004): Climate variability at the southern boundaries of the Namib (southwestern Africa) and Atacama (northern Chile) coastal deserts during the last 120,000 yr.

Jan-Berend W Stuut & Frank Lamy
In this study, we present grain-size distributions of the terrigenous fraction of two deep-sea sediment cores from the SE Atlantic (offshore Namibia) and from the SE Pacific (offshore northern Chile), which we 'unmix' into subpopulations and which are interpreted as coarse eolian dust, fine eolian dust, and fluvial mud. The downcore ratios of the proportions of eolian dust and fluvial mud subsequently represent paleocontinental aridity records of southwestern Africa and northern Chile for the last...
