Age determination of sediment core M1_251, Persian Gulf (Table 1), supplement to: Welte, Dietrich Hugo; Ebhardt, Götz (1968): Die Verteilung höherer, geradkettiger Paraffine und Fettsäuren in einem Sedimentprofil aus dem Persischen Golf.

Sediments from a 3.40 m core out of the Persian Gulf were investigated for their content of straight chain paraffins and fatty acids. The samples range in age between 2000 and 9000 years (C-14-age of organic C). They contain 100-300 ppm of extractable fatcompounds and 20-70 ppm of hydrocarbons. There is no connection between the original distribution of the homologous series of n-fatty acids and n-paraffins. However, there is evidence that part of the n-fatty acids was reduced to n-paraffins, although the sediment itself does not look as if it were deposited under reducing conditions.
