Sedimentation rates in Funka Bay, HokkaidÔ

  • Eiji Matsumoto

Undisturbed sediment cores were collected by a modified gravity corer from Funka Bay. The sedimentation rate is determined by both210Pb and pumice chronological methods. The sedimentation rates by210Pb method are concordant with those by pumice methods. The derived rate varies from 0.06 to 0.22 g cm−2 y−1, and an average is 0.09 g cm−2 y−1.
