Hence in the sediment there is thorium and being unsupported it decays according to its 75 ka halflife; thus the ratio of thorium to the long-lived thorium, which is also precipitated, decreases with depth into the sediment and allows evaluation of the time that has elapsed since deposition. 9 Paleolimnological Evidence for Trends in Atmospheric Deposition of Acids and Metals Donald F. Charles and Stephen A. Norton INTRODUCTION Paleolimnological analyses of lake sediments have traditionally been used to reconstruct many aspects of the evolution of lake/watershed ecosystems, including terrestrial and aquatic vegetational succession. Beringia is a name for landscape of Siberia, Alaska, and Yukon coined by Eric Hultén () in reference to the region’s proximity to the Bering Strait. Vitus Bering, captain of a Russian fleet, was credited with discovery of the strait after sailing through it in August , after which various features on maps were labeled as “Bhering”, “Behring”, or “Bering” (Green Dating recent peat deposits (i.e., past ∼ yrs of peat accumulation) has emerged as an important yet challenging task for estimating rates of organic matter accumulation and atmospheric pollutant deposition in peatlands. Due to their ombrotrophic nature and the tendency for Sphagnum-derived peat to have high cation exchange capacity, peatlands are ideal archives of atmospheric pollution.

Two frozen cores from Blelham Tarn were subsampled and measured using mineral magnetic, loss-on-ignition (LOI), radiometric, granulometric and diatom analyses.

A detailed chronology was established using varves, radioisotopes and diatoms. This has enabled an accurately dated reconstruction of sedimentation over the past forty years.

The global denitrification rate in continental shelf sediments was reassessed to be >50 Tg N yr −1 (1 Tg = 10 12 g), demonstrating that sediments are an important sink for oceanic nitrogen.

Globally, current nitrogen losses from the oceans may exceed inputs by 60‐90 Tg N yr −1. The cores from Blelham Tarn and Windermere were characterized by a red-brown oxidised surface layer about 1 cm thick. The underlying sediment was intensely black changing to grey-brown at cm in Windermere and cm in Blelham Tarn.

The major decline in the concentration of AVS (Fig. 1) occurs nearer the surface of the sediment. The increase in Pb prior to other metals is also recorded in the sediments of the adjacent Blelham Tarn (Ochsenbein et al., ).

The increased use of petroleum in road vehicles is also a significant contributor of Pb from onward (Miller et al., ).

The evidence from analysis of cores from lake sediments is used to identify the influences which, acting through time, have brought about changes in the lakes of the English Lake District.

Complete and conformable sediment profiles covering the last ca years are found in these lakes, but no single profile is optimal for study of the whole period. Knowledge of the pattern of sediment accumulation is necessary before the record in microfossils and changing sediment composition can be interpreted with confidence.

The stratigraphy of diatom remains in the sediment of Blelham Tarn, in the English Lake District, has been compared with population data collected by J. Lund over about 35 years. The chronology for the core rests on Cs, Pb and 14 C measurements and on the history of lead accumulation in the sediments.

The majority of the AMS 14 C dates are shown to be too old to varying degrees, depending on the source of the organic matter in the sediments. The record of vegetation change is derived from pollen analysis. A surface sediment (top 10–15 cm of the sediment column) sample was collected on the same date from a water depth of m using an Ekman dredge.

A subsample was disaggregated with sodium hexametaphosphate ( g to ml sediment slurry) and circulated. Over marl lakes from the British Isles are described and compared.

About 75 % of the lakes are extant with the remainder dating from the Late Glacial or Holocene and now completely filled with sediment. Most of the lakes are, or were, Chara-dominated and of glacial origin and the majority are shallow and less than 4 m deep.

Freshwater midges, including Chironomidae and Chaoboridae, from two alpine tarns (Pyramid Lake and Bullwinkle Lake) in the Cassiar Mountains of northern British Columbia were used to estimate Holocene palaeotemperature changes, and more specifically, to test.

This book presents research work on the sedimentation of components of palynofacies and details their importance for sequence stratigraphy and the interpretation of ancient biologic and geologic environments.

After a comprehensive introduction, later chapters look at palynosedimentation in modern environments, the reconstruction of terrestrial. On 16 July at Greenwich Civil Time, nuclear weapon tests were begun that have released Cs and other radioactive nuclides into the environment.

Over the 50 years since this first test, much research has been done to understand the movement and fate of Cs in the environment. Many of these studies are critical for understanding the application of Cs to the study of soil. An established diatom-based tidal level transfer function is used in combination with the present day relationship between sedimentation rate and altitude to reconstruct Holocene tidal sediment accretion for the Tees estuary, northeastern England.
