Service layer

Carbonate in surface sediments.

Parent identifier

Specific usage

Visualize levels and distribution of heavy metals in surface sediments in Norwegian marine and coastal areas. The proportion of carbonate in surface sediment says something about biological productivity in the water bodies or on the seabed. In arctic waters this can not be used because the carbonate shells decompose.
