(Geological Society of India, 1983)
Seventy-five sediment samples collected from the Kerala continental shelf and slope during the 17th and 71st Cruises of @iRV gaveshani@@ were analysed by X-ray diffraction for clay mineral cntent. The distribution of total ...
Provenance and distribution of clay minerals in the sediments of the western continental shelf and slope of India
The distribution of clay minerals from 156 surficial sediments of the western continental margin of India, ranging from 17 to 2000 m water depth, indicate that there are three principal sources of sediments. The illite and ...
Clay minerals and Sr-Nd isotopes of the sediments along the western margin of India and their implication for sediment provenance
Mineralogy and Sr-Nd isotopic composition of the less than 2-m fraction of the Holocene and late Pleistocene sediments from 12 gravity cores collected along the western margin of India were used to delineate the provenance ...
Clay minerals as palaeomonsoon proxies: Evaluation and relevance to the late Quaternary records from SE Arabian Sea
(NCAOR, Goa, 2005)
Palaeoclimatic studies are largely dependent on the quality of records and a prudent use of environmental proxy indicators. In this study, the factors affecting the detrital clay minerals in marine environment and their ...
