Abstract

Lake sediments provide a record of atmospheric contamination and so have been imponant in recent studies on surfacc water acidification. Carbonaceous panicles derived from fossil-fuel combustion arc found in considerable numbers in upper levels of sediment cores taken from areas with high acid deposition (Griffen & Goldbcrg 1981. Renberg & Wik 1984). Sites in the United Kingdom show close correlation between the onset of atmospheric contamination as indicated by carbonaceous paniclcs. heavy metals and magnetic deposition, and the acidification of lakes as indicated by diatom analysis (Bauarbee et al. 1988).
