My current research on temporal patterns has led to trying to find seasonal patterns inside laminated sediments. We are trying to see if there are chemical clues in the sediments that could tell us what time of year a sediment layer was deposited. We may also be able to improve our estimate of the year of creation of the seismite.
mico XRF allows us to map patterns of deposition of minute quantities of chemical elements such as Iron, Manganese, Silicon, or Magnesium which may reveal seasonal patterns inside the sediments.
