Record #104193:

Physiographic and biological factors controlling surface sediment distribution in the Fram Strait / H. Berner, G. Wefer.

Title: Physiographic and biological factors controlling surface sediment distribution in the Fram Strait / H. Berner, G. Wefer.
Author(s): Berner, H.
Wefer, G.
Date: 1990.
Publisher: Dordrecht: Kluwer Academic
In: Geological history of the polar oceans : Arctic versus Antarctic. (1990.),
Abstract: Grain-size of surface sediments is controlled by topography and reflects efficiency of bottom currents. Dropstones are rare and seem to originate from nearby shorelines. Clay mineral assemblages are found in patterns related to marginal ice zone, where biological productivity is higher. Analysis of sediment trap material, sampled over 36 months at three positions in Fram Strait, reveals relationship between quantity and composition of lithogenic matter and position of trap margin with respect to trap site. Sediment composition appears to be mainly controlled by input of ice-rafted material, with mineral composition of <=2 μm reflecting biogenically controlled pelagic sedimentation in central Fram Strait.
