Sedimentological and Mineralogical Analyses in the hot brine Discovery Deep (Red Sea)
Summary:
The subject of this thesis is the study of sedimentological and mineralogical analyses in the hot brine Discovery Deep. During an oceanographic expedition in the Red Sea in April 2010, with the R/V Aegaeo of the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research, a gravity core was recovered from Discovery Deep (21°17.09' N, 38° 02.90' E). This core had a total length of 3.5 m, but for the purposes of this study only the surface 160 cm were analysed. The aim of this study is to illustrate and interpret, through XRD and XRF analyses, ratio distribution of total organic carbon to nitrogen (TOC / N) and grain size, mineralogical and sedimentological features in the brine Discovery Deep. These results are compared with other scientific studies being associated with Discovery Deep, and with mineralogical and sedimentological data from the nearest hot brine Atlantis II Deep.
