[MIS32-04] Holocene sedimentation in estuaries of the Baltic Sea (Exp. 347)
In this presentation, we show the preliminary results from site M0062. The core recovery was ~ 36 m and the sediment sequence was divided into two lithological units. Unit 2 (17.09-35.9 mbsf) consists of well-sorted sand, deposited by a (glacio)fluvial system. Unit 1 (0-17.09 mbsf) contains a transition from clastic varves typical of a glaciolacustrine environment to couplets characteristic of a glaciomarine, or brackish environment. The uppermost 18 metres were analysed for grain-size and elemental geochemistry every 0.3-0.5 m. The uppermost 26 m were scanned by XRF at 1-cm resolution, and select intervals at 1-mm resolution.
