Description 
Summary

The aim of this project is to gain information about the origin and transport of the sediments of the area using the magnetic methodology approach. Three sampling cruises were carried out during July 1987 (13 stations sampled), May 1990 (17 stations sampled) and November 1991 (17 stations sampled). Sediments were collected by means of a box-corer. Minicores of 20cm depth were then obtained and were subsequently sliced into sub-samples of 1 to 2cm thickness. The above cited magnetic parameters were measured in the <61 Gm dry sediment fraction. The data are stored in an EXCEL 4.0 format for each sampling cruise as depth series per station.
