Carbonate and Thorium concentrations of South Atlantic sediments, supplement to: Goldberg, Edward D; Griffin, John J (1964): Sedimentation rates and mineralogy in the South Atlantic. Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans, 69(20), 4293-4309

Edward D Goldberg & John J Griffin
Rates of sedimentation of pelagic sediments in the South Atlantic have been determined using the ionium/thorium methodology. Values of the order of several millimeters per thousand years for sediments were found in the deposits in the valleys of the mid-Atlantic ridge. The equatorial deposits showed higher rates of accumulation than the corresponding deposits at higher latitudes, probably reflecting the added influx of materials to the sea floor from tropical rivers through the equatorial current systems....
