Thomas Job,


This dataset contains core logs, magnetic susceptibility, and scanning-XRF data (1 mm resolution; 24 elements) for 9 sediment cores sampled from Lake Albert, South Australia (-35.6, 139.3); one of the two 'Lower Lakes' that constitute the River Murray Estuary. Age-depth modelling results (BACON), laser diffraction grain-size data (1 cm resolution; Malvern Mastersizer 2000), and loss-on-ignition data (2 cm resolution) for one of the sediment cores are also included. This dataset accompanies the paper 'Multi-stage Holocene evolution of the River Murray Estuary, South Australia'.
