Preparation of Inorganic and Organic Carbon for 14 C Analysis from a Single Marine SampleGriffin, Sheila; Druffel, Ellen R. M. (Department of Geosciences, The University of Arizona, 1998-01-01)We have developed a technique using a single apparatus to recover the inorganic and organic carbon from a small (few milligrams) aliquot of dried marine material for radiocarbon analysis. The main advantages of using a single apparatus are: 1) less sample is required, 2) decreased handling reduces contamination, and 3) less time and materials are used. Blank values of approximately 5 micrograms and 19-44 micrograms are obtained for the inorganic and organic carbon extractions, respectively. Delta-14C results from sinking particulate organic and inorganic carbon are presented for samples collected in deep-sea sediment traps deployed for 10-30 day periods at 650 and 100 m above bottom (mab) in the northeast Pacific Ocean.
Holocene Evolution of the Outer Lake of Hwajinpo Lagoon on the Eastern Coast of Korea; Environmental Changes with Holocene Sea-Level Fluctuation of the East Sea (Sea of Japan)Yum, Jong-Gwon; Yu, Kang-Min; Takemura, Keiji; Naruse, Toshiro; Kitamura, Akihisa; Kitagawa, Hiroyuki; Kim, Jong-Chan (Department of Geosciences, The University of Arizona, 2004-01-01)The evolution of the outer lake of Hwajinpo Lagoon in Korea has been reconstructed using environmental proxies (lithologic, geochemical, and fossil data) with a chronology established using 7 accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) radiocarbon dates. Grain size, water content, and X-ray analyses from the core of outer coastal lakes (HJ99) were used to reconstruct sedimentary environments by using total organic carbon, C/N, S, and C/S chemical proxies. Assemblages of mollusc remains also provided paleoenvironmental information. The environmental changes of the outer lake of Hwajinpo Lagoon can be divided into 6 depositional phases. The basin of the Hwajinpo was exposed and underwent a weathering process before the Holocene period. The muddy sand layer on the weathered bedrock indicated an estuarine system about 6000 BP. The laminated layer implies that the lagoonal system was anoxic between about 5500-2800 BP. The marl layer implies a relatively oxic lagoonal condition with mollusc presence about 2500 BP. The layer of very low sulfur content indicates a freshwater lake system isolated by a sand barrier about 1700 BP. Beginning about 1000 BP, the river system deposits progress progradation on the marl layer. Two erosional landforms could be related with a high standing sea level span during Holocene. These high-stands are dated at 5700 BP and 2200 BP and are supposed to have formed erosional landforms of about 1.6 amsl and 0.8 amsl, respectively. Environmental changes of the outer lake of Hwajinpo Lagoon are considered due mainly to the lake-and sea-level fluctuation during Holocene.
