HU93030-007 LCF (65o01.390N and 30o14.810W) is a 4.5 m long, giant (11 cm diameter) piston core from 1800 m water depth on the continental slope, south of the Denmark Strait sill. The core sampled acoustically stratified sediments at a site below the Kangerlussuaq Trough. Nine AMS C dates on planktic foraminifera indicate that the core spans 3⁄414 to 28 C ka. The sediments consists of two principal lithofacies: Lithofacies I (LI) comprises tan=ochre intervals with abundant ice-rafted sandstone… CONTINUE READING
