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 ...
Heavy minerals in the sediments on the outer continental shelf between Vengurla and Mangalore on the west coast of India
(Geological Society of India, 1981)
Fifty-eight sediment samples from the outer continental shelf between Vengurla and Mangalore were analysed for heavy minerals consist of principally opaques, hornblende, epidote, garnet, sillimanite, hypersthene and zircon, ...
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 ...
