• The Value of 210Pb in Dating Scandinavian Aquatic and Peat Deposits

      El-Daoushy, Farid (American Journal of Science, 1986-01-01)
      Sediment and peat chronologies have been further improved allowing alternative radiometric methods to complement 14C dating. Lacustrine and coastal marine sediments as well as peat deposits in various parts in Scandinavia are studied using 137Cs, 210Pb, 14C and other methods primarily to evaluate the 210Pb but also to extend the 14C chronology. The sampling sites have various sources of input and are characterized by different geochemical, depositional, and post-depositional conditions.
