Sediment samples acquired in 2010 from the long cores of the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP) PaleoVan drilling project on Lake Van for noble-gas analysis in the pore water allow determination of the local terrestrial He-gradient as a function of depth within a sediment column of more than 200 m. These measurements yield first insights into the physical transport mechanisms of terrigenic He through the uppermost part of unconsolidated lacustrine sediments overlying the continental crust.
