Objectives and methods
Objectives and Methods Combustion in Central Amazon Sediments

  • Characterization of hydrocarbons in sediments of Solimões River and associated lakes prior to oil exploration.

  • Base line and diagnostic origin.

  • Surface sediment sampling in Jun/2005 (wet period) and Nov/2005 (dry period) + cores sediment in 3 lakes.

  • Molecular markers in saturated and aromatic fractions, 38 PAH, trace-metals, ancillary data.

  • GC-MS for organics, ICPMS for metals and TOC for organic carbon.

Perylene partly derived from combustion ?

  • Factorial analysis groups " 3-6 rings PAH” (Fl, BaA, BbFl, BaPy, Pe, IPy, Py) and Corg in fator 1 contributing to 66% of the variance.

  • Good correlations of Pe and some trace metals that can be emitted during combustion [Cd (r=0,83), Pb (r=0,77), Cu (r=0,79), Zn (r=0,73)]

Cd → 0,09 – 1,33 mg g-1

Zn → 24,5 – 147 mg g-1

Conclusions
Conclusions Combustion in Central Amazon Sediments

  • There are no indication of contamination due to ship traffic or oil activities in Coari-Manaus. This is different in industrial Manaus.

  • Early diagenesis at high local temperatures and biological activity interferes with PAH typology.

  • Molecular markers are essential in such cases.

  • In dry periods biomass burning in the “deforestation arc” migrates north and is recorded in sediments.

  • Some of the perylene found in sediments may derive from these events.

  • High fraction of 1.7DMPh in dated core indicate combustion (slash-and-burn) records as early as end 19th century.
