Title: Origin, formation and environmental significance of sapropels in shallow Holocene coastal lakes of Southeastern Australia.
Author: Mee, Aija C.
Issue Date: 2007
School/Discipline: School of Earth and Environmental Sciences : Geology and Geophysics
Abstract: The aims of this investigation on the Holocene carbonate successions of three shallow, ephemeral lakes from the Cooring coastal plain were: to determine the timing of the sapropel ’events’ in the three lakes; to determine the origin of the sapropelic organic matter and evaluate changes; to establish whether sapropel deposition in these shallow, coastal lakes primarily reflects increased organic matter delivery to the sediments during periods of enhanced terrestrial input and/or aquatic productivity, and; to relate sapropel deposition in these three lakes to both regional and global palaeoenvironment reconstructions. --p. 23-24.
