The Pb dating method has been applied successfully to the determination of recent sedimentation rates at four sites distributed among the three major sedimentary basins Niagara, Mississauga and Rochester of Lake Ontario. Following correction for effects due to compaction of the sediments, mean sedimentation rates ranging from 0. Neither Pb nor fallout Cs profiles indicated surface mixing of sediment sufficient to noticeably affect the calculated sedimentation rates. At all four sites, the sedimentation rate seems to have remained constant during the last — years.

Three sediment cores were taken from Guanabara Bay. Two of them yielded Pb profiles that could be applied for dating purposes. Actual sedimentation rates.
Reviews and syntheses 15 Nov Correspondence : Ariane Arias-Ortiz ariane. Vegetated coastal ecosystems, including tidal marshes, mangroves and seagrass meadows, are being increasingly assessed in terms of their potential for carbon dioxide sequestration worldwide. However, there is a paucity of studies that have effectively estimated the accumulation rates of sediment organic carbon C org , also termed blue carbon, beyond the mere quantification of C org stocks.
Here, we discuss the use of the Pb dating technique to determine the rate of C org accumulation in these habitats. We review the most widely used Pb dating models to assess their limitations in these ecosystems, often composed of heterogeneous sediments with varying inputs of organic material, that are disturbed by natural and anthropogenic processes resulting in sediment mixing and changes in sedimentation rates or erosion.

Cores from all sites had good records of the fallout radionuclides from which it was possible to construct reliable chronologies of the recent sediments. Radiometric dating of sediment records in European mountain lakes. Chronostratigraphic techniques in recent sediments, pp.
The dating exercise was performed using Pb, Ra and Cs activity data from two sediment cores (coastal and lacustrine sediments), and the participants.

Sedimentation Rate and 210 Pb Sediment Dating at Apipucos Reservoir, Recife, Brazil
The paper presents the results of measurements the specific concentration of lead for six peat profiles representing four peat bogs from two regions of Poland and the problem of creating age-depth models. For the construction of age-depth models, it is proposed to use mathematical functions, the best fit to the measured activity. The F-statistics were used as a measure of the match quality.
The obtained models are visualized in two ways — showing the age calculated on the basis of direct measurements of activity and indicating points that are the results of the used approximation. Such visualization is important to clearly distinguish the places of the age-depth model that result from the measurements of activity from those places that are the result of the approximation used.

The radiochemistry laboratory at the Marine Sciences Laboratory MSL has the ability to measure natural series, cosmogenic and bomb-produced radionuclides e. The isotopes typically used for this determination in terrestrial and coastal marine environments are Pb and the bomb-produced isotope Cs. This methodology is based on the pioneering work of Koide, Bruland, Goldberg and co-workers Koide et al.

Close menu. Sedimentation rate at Kuantan and Kemaman harbours were determined by applying the Pb profiles. This investigation of sedimentation rate is a part of an overall study to examine and quantify past and present patterns of sedimentation, revealing how deposition of sediments occurs in active physical activities areas such as marine harbours.
This is the first report of sedimentation rates in Kuantan and Kemaman harbour, Malaysia which show the sedimentation rate at Kemaman 0. By assuming the constant sedimentation rate; we can consider the sediment age at Kemaman is younger than Kuantan harbour. Well dated sediment core can be used in forthcoming research to investigate the historical profile of anthropogenic activities affecting the Kuantan and Kemaman harbours.

Abstract Estuarine environments potentially provide excellent geological archives and the two radioactive isotopes Pb and Cs can be used to date the most recent past, under ideal circumstances as far back as — years. However, some obvious and some less obvious requirements need to be fulfilled for the dating-methods to be applicable and estuaries are often challenging environments in this respect.

This paper describes the combined use of CS and Pb radiotracers for obtaining information on sedimentation which in a changing coastal environment is subject to erosion, losses of sediments, and deposition of material that had been remobilized before from near-shore sediments in the course of storm surges. Geochronologies were established for sediment cores taken from salt marsh cliffs on the Isle of Sylt Germany.
Concentrations of CS and of excess Pb were measured y-spectrometrically. Micromorphological analyses of thin-sections showed that sediment mixing in all cores is negligible. An advection model was fitted to the vertical distributions of CS. The results indicate that cores taken from sparsely vegetated areas had been denudated prior to sampling. This was confirmed independently by the lack of any Chernobyl-derived cesium in these cores. Taking denudation into account, Pb geochronologies are consistent with sediment dating based on the CS data.
Grain size analyses showed that only some sediment layers include a coarse sand fraction. The dating of these sandy layers coincides with periods of elevated storm surge activities, giving an independent validation of our method. We can conclude that sedimentation rates at the sites studied remained almost constant during the last 50 years.
