Unformatted text preview: identiﬁed as sediment or
sediment melt and an aqueous ﬂuid. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
We thank C.-D. Garbe-Schonberg and T. Arpe for
their extensive help with the ICP-MS analyses, and Kaj
Hoernle and Folkmar Hauﬀ for their valuable assistance
with the TIMS analyses. Many thanks go to Dietrich
Ackermand, Nigel Bruguier, Alex Cunningham, Graham
Eagles, Chris German, Helge Moller, Sven Petersen,
Teal Riley, Ulrich Schwarz-Schampera and the captains
and crews of the Polarstern and James Clark Ross for able
assistance with the sampling at sea. J. Pearce, R. Stern,
T. Elliott and M. Wilson are gratefully acknowledged
for their extremely thorough and constructive reviews.
