Mineralogy of the carbonate sediments - western continental shelf of India
An X-ray diffraction study of forty-six sediment samples and three oolitic limestone samples from the western continental shelf of India shows that aragonite is the dominant carbonate mineral (99% maximum), followed by ...
Distribution of Al, Mn, Ni, Co & Cu in the non-lithogenous fractions of sediments of the northern half of the western continental shelf of India
Higher amounts of elements are associated with the nonlithogenous fractions of the fine grained terrigenous sediments of the innershelf region with low carbonate content than with the corresponding fractions of the coarse ...
Ooid turbidites from the Central Western continental margin of India
Gravity displaced debris flows/turbidites have been observed in five box cores collected between water depths of 649 and 3,627 m from the Central Western continental margin of India. Studies on grain size, carbonate content, ...
Size distribution and carbonate content of the sediments of the western shelf of India
(National Institute of Sciences of India, 1968)
Sediment samples collected during the 25th cruise of I.N.S. KISTNA (Indian Programme of I.I.O.E.) were analysed for grain size and carbonate content. The shelf sediments show well defined zonation, except where river-borne ...
