Abstract

The activity of 137Cs per unit area in sediments of the central part of the Lagoon of Venice was determined with the aim of identifying boundaries of homogeneous depositional zones. the 210Pb dating technique was used to date vertical profiles of cores from the same area. A comparison of the total amounts of 137Cs and non-supported 210Pb present in each core and the atmospheric input allows us to identify different depositional areas inside the basin and to outline the possible drainage effect of industrial solid wastes used in past reclaiming operations. © 1988.
