Sediment core major elements

*DATASET-NAME : MTP II-MATER -Sediment core major elements in Adriatic, Ionian and Otranto Strait

*TIME-PERIOD : 1997 to present

*GEOGRAPHIC COVERAGE : Southern Adriatic Sea, Northern Ionian Sea, Otranto Strait

*PROJECT : MASTIII/MTPII/MATER, MAss Transfer and Ecosystem Response

*PARAMETERS : Major (Si, Al, Fe, Mg, Ca, Na, K, Ti, Mn, P) and minor (Sc, Ba, V, La, Ce, Nd, Cr, Ni, Cu, Zn, Pb, Th, U, Rb, Sr, Y, Zr, Nb, Mo, I, Br) elements in the sediment

*INSTRUMENTS : Phillips PW 1480 wave length dispersive sequential X ray spectrometer.

*SUMMARY : XRF analysis on fused discs (majors) and pressed sediment discs (minors) to assess temporal variations including anthropogenic heavy metal inputs and the effects of burial diagenesis on the composition of sediments.
