Qualitative and quantitative approaches in palaeohydrography: a case study from core-top parameters in the Gulf of Cadiz (2010)
Journal Article
Rogerson, M., Schönfeld, J., & Leng, M. J. (2011). Qualitative and quantitative approaches in palaeohydrography: a case study from core-top parameters in the Gulf of Cadiz. Marine Geology, 280(1-4), (150-167). doi:10.1016/j.margeo.2010.12.008. ISSN 0025-3227

Palaeoceanography relies on the assumption that parameters measureable in sediment cores correlate reliably to hydrographic parameters. Areas of dynamic watermass mixing, which generally have steep hydrographic gradients, therefore provide both a tem... Read More
