    apposition

    Scientists have observed large concentrations of heavy-metal deposits in the upper twenty centimeters of sediments from the Baltic Sea, findings consistent with its growth of industrial activity in the area.

    is the "findings" in apposition to "large concentrations of heavy-metal deopsits....?"

    thanks

    Re: apposition

    Yes, "findings" refers to "large concentrations of heavy metal deposits" (although I don't think "in apposition to" is the right phrase for that).
