CORRELATION OF SEDIMENT CORES ON THE BASIS OF THEIR MAGNETIZATION

Authors


ABSTRACT

Sediment cores originating from the Indian and the Atlantic Ocean were investigated. The declination of the cores was measured non-destructively. In both regions it was possible to correlate several cores on the basis of their magnetization (intensity correlation in contrast to correlation of paleomagnetic reversals). Additional layers of turbidity-currents and a layer of volcanic material were detected.
