Anthropogenically induced changes in sediment and biogenic silica fluxes in Chesapeake Bay: Correction
Steven M. Colman and John F. Bratton
Geology, v. 31, p. 71–74 (January 2003)
Because of an error in the calculation of bulk densities from water contents, the mass fluxes (total sediment and biogenic silica) presented were too high by a factor of about two. The actual correction depends to small degree on water content and ranges from 1.8 for a water content of 50 percent to 2.2 for a water content of 75 percent.
In the recalculated values, the contrast between pre- and postsettlement times...
