||Mineral magnetic and chemical studies indicate the impact and great importance of atmospheric versus riverine input of particles in the sediments of the Gulf of Lions and provide some strong indications about the presence of anthropogenic particles in offshore deep sediments of this region. The data indicate that Saharan dust and anthropogenic particles coexist at several depth intervals in the sediment, supporting the hypothesis that Saharan dust episodes could play an important role in facilitating deposition and coprecipitation of anthropogenic particles from the atmosphere and the water column.
