: azimmer ufl. Reliable sedimentation histories are difficult to obtain in sandy or anthropogenically impacted coastal systems with disturbed sediment profiles and low initial radionuclide activities.
Non-steady sedimentation and nuclide scavenging processes are shown to limit application of traditional radiometric dating models in this system. Activities of three radioisotopes used for sediment dating Ra, Pb, and Cs were compared with grain size and organic matter OM distributions to assess the factors that influence accumulation of radionuclides.
Regression analysis indicated Lady wants casual sex PA Philadelphia 19111 radionuclide activities were more strongly correlated with OM content than with grain size parameters, and a novel OM-normalisation procedure was developed to correct for preferential nuclide associations.
Normalised Pb xs profiles provide evidence for shifts in sedimentation rates and episodic erosion events in regions of the estuary where anthropogenic disturbance is known to have occurred. Our emphasise the need to Hot horny girls Wentworth Location radionuclide scavenging by OM in sandy coastal sediments when establishing sedimentation histories.

We particularly appreciate detailed reviews from Andrew Boulton and anonymous referees, which led to ificant improvement of the manuscript.
