The mean sortable silt size in Holocene sediment core MD08-3182Cq from the Gardar drift

Catherine Kissel
For measurements of the mean sortable silt size of the detrital faction, biogenic carbonates were dissolved using acetic acid (20 %) and the organic matter was removed using hydrogen peroxide (33%) at 85°C. The samples were sieved through a 63 μm mesh and mixed in Sodium hexametaphosphate solution (0,2 %) in an ultrasonic bath for 2 minutes before analysis. The measurement was made using a Beckman Coulter Counter Multisizer 3 with a 100µm aperture tube...
