Complete 8 pages APA formatted article: Palaeoecological Assessment of a New Deep water Channel in the Lower River Test. The region was 100-200m wide and 60m below mean low water level and located entirely within the present estuary and adjacent to the present deep-water channel. This was below the mean low water line. In this regard, palaeoecological and archaeological potential included the sediments that were reasonably encountered and the potential the sediments might have in informing both the scientific community and the public on both the ecological and archaeological history of the area, the relative sea-level history of the estuary and its relationship to regional relative sea-level history. .
The depths of the sediments were estimated using the ground penetration radar: 200 MHz antennae, and Pulse Ekko Pro system. The measurements were done on the transect lines designed for the representation of the wide range of sedimentation within the study area. The collected samples were observed and examined inside the laboratory. The samples were described using the subsample pro forma. The subsamples of about two kilograms were utilized in all the cases with the exception of one context that used a one-kilogram subsample. These subsamples were processed by the standard methods. These methods included the floatation of paraffin so as to extract any type of insects that remained. The remains of sediments were extracted by a washover to have the lighter organic fraction concentrated. The whole volume of the organic and the inorganic fractions together with heavy mineral fractions was measured. The parts of the sample fractions were recorded especially when still wet. The residue was stored wet, whereas the washover was stored wet.
