Sedimentology and geochemistry of the sand fraction in surface sediments off West Africa, supplement to: Diester-Haass, Lieselotte; Müller, Peter J (1979): Processes influencing sand fraction composition and organic matter content in surface sediments off W Africa (12-19°N).

Surface sediments from 5 profiles between 30 and 3000 m water depth off W Africa (12-19° N) have been studied for their sand fraction composition and their total calcium carbonate and organic matter contents to evaluate the effect of climatic and hydrographic factors on actual sedimentation.
