E

'Baltic Sea sediments' in original sentence is awkward, gets the feeling, Baltic sea is full of only sediments, elliminate A, B, C

D is wordy, we are left with E.

Will go with (D), what are consistent? - The findings.

(D) IMO, "in the area" should mean to the surroundings the Baltic Sea where the sediments are concentrated.
