Geochemistry and position of turbidites in the Cap Timiris Canyon off Mauritania, supplement to: Wien, Katharina; Holz, Christine; Kölling, Martin; Schulz, Horst D (2006): Age models for pelagites and turbidites from the Cap Timiris Canyon off Mauritania. Marine and Petroleum Geology, 23, 337-352

This study of sediments from the Cap Timiris Canyon demonstrates that geochemical data can provide reliable age-depth correlation even of highly turbiditic cores and attempts to improve our understanding of how turbidite emplacement is linked to climatic-related sea-level changes. The canyon incises the continental margin off NW Africa and is an active conduit for turbidity currents. In sediment cores from levee and intrachannel sites turbidites make up 6-42% of sediment columns. Age models were fitted...
