Abstract:

The mass physical properties of 86 samples from a suite of 8 cores from the Eastern Novaya Zemlya Trough, Kara Sea, were compiled into a database for statistical analysis. The database also included size characteristics, mineralogy of the 2 microns size fraction, and chemical composition 40 chemical elements. The chemical elements include the potentially toxic elements being followed in the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment program. The size frequency, fine-size fraction mineralogy and chemistry of samples affect the mass physical properties.
