Figure F2. Raw X-ray fluorescence (XRF) Ca peak area profile graphed with discrete CaCO3 wt% at Site U1338. Because XRF is a volume measurement and not a mass measurement, the raw Ca peak areas increase systematically with depth because the porosity of the sediment decreases and the illuminated mass of sediment in each measurement increases.
