Abstract An historical record of natural (pre-cultural) and anthropogenic (influenced by man's activities) chemical inputs to the environment is contained in accumulating sediment deposits and is commonly expressed as a depositional flux. This flux is traditionally calculated as the product of the sediment accumulation rate and the concentration of a substance in the sediment. Previous work has quantified depositional fluxes of metals and nutrients by assuming that the vertical distribution of these substances in sediments is unaffected by post-depositional migration, chemical reaction or porosity variations. The authors present here a procedure for calculating the historical depositional flux (loading record) of a substance which undergoes post-depositional chemical reaction in a compacting sediment column. The method is demonstrated by calculating the loading record of organic nitrogen at one locality in Lake Erie. (Copyright (c) Macmillan Journals Ltd., 1982.)
