Record #191877:

A comparison of Holocene sediment- and paleo-magnetic characteristics from the margins of Iceland and east Greenland / John T. Andrews, Jórunn Hardardóttir.

Title: A comparison of Holocene sediment- and paleo-magnetic characteristics from the margins of Iceland and east Greenland / John T. Andrews, Jórunn Hardardóttir.
Author(s): Andrews, John T.
Hardardóttir, Jórunn.
Date: 2009.
In: Jökull. (2009.), Vol. 59 (2009)
Abstract: Presents environmental and palaeomagnetic data from 16 cores on either side of Denmark Strait, six from east Greenland and remainder from Iceland shelf. Bedrock geology in both regions mainly consists of Tertiary and Quaternary basalts. Results show consistent difference in terms of median values and coefficient of variation between east Greenland and Iceland sediments in respect of several magnetic properties. In particular, sediments from Iceland have lower mass magnetic and anhysteretic susceptibilities, and lower and more variable median destructive fields. This phenomenon is partly attributable to higher values of carbonate and volcanic glass in Icelandic sediments.
