Sulphur (S) content in surface sediments.

Parent identifier

Specific usage

The proportion of sulphur indicates whether the marine deposition environment is free of oxygen. Low sulphur content indicates that there is oxygen present, while a high content indicates that there is little oxygen present. If there is little oxygen present, iron sulphides can be formed in the sediments. Iron sulphides often associate a number of polluting metals.
