Hi PLUTO

My few cents.

1. Consistent is an adjective, not a noun. (An adjective gives more info about a noun.)
Whenever in doubt, make simple sentences to help better understanding.

E.g. Consistent study helps a student make a speedier progress in GMAT prep.
What type of study? Consistent= adjective , study = noun

2. Although, there refers to location the bigger issue is we DO NEED a noun +noun modifer
to refer back to findings of the observation in independent clause -1 :

Scientists have observed large concentrations of heavy-metal deposits in the upper twenty centimetres of Baltic Sea sediments

Let me put your revised version and OA together:

Scientists have observed large concentrations of heavy-metal deposits in the upper twenty centimeters of Baltic Sea sediments

OA: sediments from the Baltic Sea, findings consistent with the growth of industrial activity in the area

Your choice: sediments from the Baltic Sea, consistent with the growth of industrial activity

Can you guage what is consistent from your edited answer choice after eliminating there?
I can understand that it is findings that are consistent from (D)

Hope this helps.
Happy study prep.
