Description: Institut für Chemie und Biologie des Meeres, Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, Postfach 2503, 26111 Oldenburg, Germany. In this paper we present an algorithm based on wavelet multiscale decomposition, designed to detect lines of maximal gradients in horizontal direction within two-dimensional data sets. The algorithm is capable of identifying layer boundaries within sediment profiles, as demonstrated for artificial as well as two field data sets. Layers are detected with a good resolution within (i) digital images of a deep sea sediment core (IODP-expedition 301, core 15H) and (ii) chemical concentration patterns of recent tidal sediments (North Sea).
