Sediment processing unraveled

The sediment cores are carefully prepared for multiple analyses:

  • Physical description: colour, odour,  viscosity, density
  • Magnetic susceptibility:  used as a proxy signature for the lithological composition characterisation of the sediments
  • Fluid extraction: for dissolved substances analysis
  • Gas extraction: for volatile substances analysis
  • Thermal conductivity: necessary to understand the heat transfer
