Abstract

Bivariate scatter plots are used to illustrate variations in selected rock magnetic properties of late Neogene and Pleistocene deep-sea sediments. Overall, correlations between sediment magnetic properties and gross lithology is poor, and factors such as the source and transport path of terrigenous sediment, together with the action of reductive diagenetic processes, are the major controls on the magnetic properties. -from Authors
