Problems of core correlation, sediment source ascription and yield estimation in Ponsonby Tarn, West Cumbria, UK

Description :
A suite of 27 short cores, 10 of which have been used for magnetic measurements and 4 for radiometric dating, provides a framework for reconstructing the processes, patterns and rates of sedimentation in Ponsonby Tarn, a small artificial impoundment created towards the end of the 19th century, close to the Sellafield nuclear reprocessing plant in NW England. Spatial and temporal changes in sedimentation are reconstructed and evidence presented for non-synchroneity in magnetic property changes from core to core in the upper part of the sequence, as a result of sorting and selective deposition at different distances from the inflow to the Tarn.
