Comment on "Lack of enhanced preservation of organic matter in sediments under the oxygen minimum on the Oman Margin" by T.F. Pedersen, G.B. Shimmield, and N.B. Price
A comment on the study on the lack of enhanced preservation of organic matter in sediments under the oxygen minimum on the Oman Margin is given. As such a negative correspondence between productivity and organic enrichment ...
Controls on organic carbon distribution in sediments from the eastern Arabian Sea margin
Sediment cores from the upper continental slope of the eastern Arabian Sea have high organic carbon (OC), CaCO sub(3), and sand content at the top. The values decrease with increasing depth in the Holocene and Upper ...
New evidence for enhanced preservation of organic carbon in contact with oxygen minimum zone on the western continental slope of India
In order to evaluate the reason for organic enrichment on the western continental slope of India, we provide Rock-Eval pyrolysis data of 25 surficial sediment samples from this area. Results show that the organic matter ...
Radiolarian abundance and geochemistry of the surface-sediments from the Central Indian Basin: Inferences to Antarctic bottom water current
(Current Science Association, 1994)
The distribution trend of numbers of radiolarian shells/gram dry sediment, biogenic silica, organic carbon, and the carbon/nitrogen ratios in the surface sediments of the Central Indian Basin is similar. Ratios of two ...
Organic carbon and humic acids in sediments of the Arabian Sea and factors governing their distribution
Organic carbon and humic acids in the sediments of the Arabian Sea show distinct regional variations to the south and north of 15~'N latitude. Significant variations are also observed from the shelf to the slope regions. ...
