Sediment accumulation in the Golden Horn has been established by means of a useful geochronological technique; 210Pb Radiometric Dating Method. The 210Pb dating technique revealed a sediment accumulation rate of 3.5 cm yr−1 which is very reasonable given the characteristics of the Golden Horn. The 210Pb profile also revealed three distinct levels in the sediments of the Golden Horn; a surface layer with nearly uniform activities, an exponential decay interval and a lower region with almost constant low activity
