Event layers in the Japanese Lake Suigetsu ‘ SG 06 ’ sediment core : description , interpretation and climatic implications

Detailed characterisation of the layers allows the discrimination of the sedimentation processes involved, such as surface runoff, landslides or subaqueous slope failures. These processes can then be interpreted in terms of their triggering… (More)
