(Table 1) Lithological and organic-geochemical compositions of bottom sediments from the Southwestern Indian Ocean (Mozambique Basin), supplement to: Danyushevskaya, A I; Romankevich, Evgeny A (1987): Geochemistry of organic matter in bottom sediments of the Mozambique Basin. Oceanology, 27(3), 292-298A I Danyushevskaya & Evgeny A Romankevich
Geochemical changes in organic matter of bottom sediments from the Mozambique Basin at the river-sea barrier from the mouths of the Zambezi and Limpopo rivers toward the pelagic zone are discussed. Changes in bitumen, hydrolyzable material, humic acids, amino acids, n-alkanes, and polycyclic aromatic compounds resulting from genetic and diagenetic factors are described. This information is significant for paleoceanology reconstructions and for knowing ways of organic matter transformation into fossil forms.
