XRF titanium, iron counting and ratio Fe/Ti for CON01-603-2 and VER98-1-14


In selected intervals, we measured titanium and iron contents in parallel to rock magnetic parameters (Fig. 9). Titanium content is a good reflection of detrital input since minerals containing titanium are not very sensitive to dissolution. Iron, however, is rather mobile and involved in the redox history of highly porous sediments: the spike of iron observed on top of the sedimentary column (Fig. 9A) marks the redox front. We observed a strong similarity between the titanium and HIRM curves: the detrital input decreases from the late glacial to the Holocene. In ancient sediments, HIRM and titanium display similar variations with high values in glacials and low values in interglacials (Fig. 9B).
