Abstract

Distribution patterns of higher molecular-weight n-alkanes and of n-fatty acids greater than n-C21 for sediment assays closely reflected those of terrigenous vascular plants. The detection of dehydroabietic acid and the distributions of the n-methylketones also corroborate the influx of terrigenous lipids. The lipids of the Pleistocene samples appear to have an aeolian origin. -Authors
