Sediment (SAR) and mass (MAR) accumulation rates for the last 100 years are derived from Pb profiles of box cores collected in three fjords and on the continental shelf in the Kangerlussuaq region, East Greenland, and on the SW Iceland continental shelf. The MAR is lower on East Greenland (0.09 g/cm2·yr) than on SW Iceland (0.14 g/cm2·yr) because of differences in the biogenic component of the sediments, although SAR is similar. The differences in accumulation rates of the three East Greenland… CONTINUE READING
