Deep organic sedimentation along the atlantic south eastern margin as a paleoclimatic indicator for last glacial-interglacial studies.

Abstract

The Atlantic South-eastern margin is influenced by the presence of broad upwelling cells associated with the Benguela Current System. Sedimentary records of cores taken along 2500 km from North to South show extraordinarily high organic carbon contents for this deep and oxygenated sedimentation environment. Thus this margin is different from classically known models of organic matter preservation by the bottom water anoxia.
