Deposition of organic matter in the Norwegian-Greenland Sea during the past 2.7 million years

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Variations in the amount and composition of sedimentary organic matter in glacial and interglacial deposits of the last 2.7 myr correlate with late Cenozoic climatic and oceanographic changes in the Norwegian-Greenland Sea (NGS). These variations are predominantly caused by the changing supply of terrestrial and reworked organic matter (OM). To introduce the general total organic carbon (TOC) patterns observed in NGS deposits, the AA. discuss how Quaternary glacial to interglacial climatic cycles have affected changes in the deposition of OM in the area of investigation
