A B C wrong because Baltic Sea sediments is incorrect. it has to be sediments from Baltic sea

Amongst D and E, D removes ambiguity of consistency by specifying findings

Baltic sea sediments is a wrong usage.It should be sediments from Baltic sea..

similar examples-I talked to the Indian soldier(Too Short)
I talked to the soldier from India(Better)

ural mountain ore ore from the ural mountain
Aegean sea salt salt from Aegean sea

Ergo A,B,C is not correct.

so now it is between D and E.
E is wrong because of "there"

Ergo D is the answer..

D.

I am not sure if there's anything wrong with saying Baltic sea sediments.

I eliminated A, B, C and E for other reasons.

A. which (x)
b. where (x)
c. its (x)
E. consistent....... (x)

One question for expert: is "Baltic Sea sediments" by default wrong?

Am not an expert but I think you have a very good point. In "Baltic Sea sediments", the noun is "sediments" and so, "Baltic Sea" is used as adjective. But that does not seem to be correct usage, because "Baltic Sea" is a noun. I mean..we can have "coarse sediment", "fine sediment", "alluvial sediment" etc. , but we can't have "Baltic Sea sediments" because "Baltic Sea" is not a characteristic or a property of the sediments.

Experts, is my thinking correct?
