Dating holocene sediments
The directions of the characteristic remanent magnetization (Ch RM) were obtained from progressive alternating field demagnetization of the natural remanent magnetization (NRM) followed by principle component analysis.
The resulting stratigraphic framework provides the highest temporal resolution for a thick-bedded Holocene turbidite succession to date, permitting an evaluation of source-to-sink controls at millennial (1000 yr) scales.

One of the most interesting findings of this study is a clear relationship between the rate of sedimentation and fluctuations in the energy of depositional environment.
The analyzed sediment core revealed two sections of different accumulation rates.
