Abstract

Distribution of210Pb in sediments on the South Texas Continental Shelf is related to dynamics of the sedimentary transport processes. This radioisotope, whose concentration is time-dependent, defines three depocenters on the shelf. In addition, the variation of210Pb activity at the sediment/water interface delineates areas of terrigenous sedimentation from hemipelagic sedimentation. ?? 1985 Springer-Verlag New York Inc.
