Radiocarbon ages of bottom sediments and sedimentation rates in depressions of the Red Sea rift zone, supplement to: Kuptsov, Vladimir M; Palkina, Alla M (1987): Rates of sediment accumulation in deep-water depressions of the Red Sea rift zone. Oceanology, 27(5), 591-597

Vladimir M Kuptsov & Alla M Palkina
Sedimentation rates (SR) for metalliferous and ore sediments containing ore material in 15 depressions of the Red Sea rift zone are discussed. SR for normal sediments was ca. 3.2 cm/ka in the second half of Holocene, 14.3 cm/ka yrs in the first half of Holocene, and 21.3 cm/ka in Late Würmian. Accumulation of metalliferous and ore sediments requires considerable accumulation of hydrothermal matter. Ore sediments have been found primarily in the Atlantis II and Chain...
