Seasonality of delta 13C and C/N ratios in modern and mid-Holocene sediments in the Severn Estuary Levels, SW Britain
Allen, J.R.L.; Lamb, Angela; Dark, P.. 2007 Seasonality of delta 13C and C/N ratios in modern and mid-Holocene sediments in the Severn Estuary Levels, SW Britain. The Holocene, 17 (1). 139-144. 10.1177/0959683607073296Full text not available from this repository.
Bulk organic &dgr;13C and C/N ratios from mid-Holocene salt-marsh deposits with sedimentary banding reveal subtle but significant differences between coarse- and fine-grained deposits. These are consistent with findings from seasonally sampled modern silts, and with the interpretation, on physical and palynological grounds, of the fine-grained and coarse-grained components as warm-season and cold-season deposits, respectively. The control is considered to be seasonal variations in the character of the organic matter supplied.
