Australasian microtektites from the Central Indian Basin: Implications for ejecta distribution patterns
(Current Science Association, Bangalore, India, 1996)
Microtektites belonging to the Australasian tektite strewn field have been recovered in one (SK-16/176) out of three cores examined from the Central Indian Basin. The microtektites have been identified based on their ...
Evidence for recent hydrothermal activity in the Central Indian Basin
This study documents the first actual prof of recent intraplate volcanic-hydrothermal activity in the Central Indian Basin (CIB). Twenty-six surface sediments and a spade core (37 cm long) from the CIB were examined for ...
Ablated tektite from the central Indian Ocean
(Meteoritical Society, Fayetteville, USA, 1996)
A well-preserved ablated (button-shaped) tektite recovered from the surface sediments of the central Indian Ocean lacks flow ridges and has apparently undergone ablation of 6.9 to 7.9 mm. The lack of flow ridges and amount ...
A tektite fragment discovered in the Central Indian Basin
(Current Science Association, 1998)
On the basis of various lines of evidence, tektites are now considered as glassy objects generated by meteorite impacts, distributed in four known strewn fields, of which, the Australasian tektite strewn field is the ...
