Oxygen isotope calibration of the onset of ice-rafting and history of glaciation in the North Atlantic region
We report here that DSDP Site 552A, cored with the hydraulic piston corer on the west flank of Rockall Bank, recovered an undisturbed sequence of alternating white deep-sea carbonate oozes andExpand

Processes controlling the composition of heavy mineral assemblages in sandstones
Abstract Sandstone compositions result from a complex interplay between provenance and factors that operate during the sedimentation cycle. Accurate identification and discrimination of provenanceExpand

Identifying provenance-specific features of detrital heavy mineral assemblages in sandstones
Abstract The composition of heavy mineral assemblages in sandstones may be heavily influenced by processes operating during transport, deposition and diagenesis. As a consequence, conventional heavyExpand

Heavy Minerals in Provenance Studies
Heavy minerals are sensitive indicators of provenance. Over 30 translucent detrital species are of common occurrence, many of which have characteristic parageneses. However, because they are alsoExpand

Chapter 13 Geochemistry of Heavy Minerals
Abstract This contribution provides an insight into the use of mineral chemistry in provenance research, and demonstrates how studies, by using microbeam techniques on several detrital heavy mineralExpand

Garnet compositions in Scottish and Norwegian basement terrains: a framework for interpretation of North Sea sandstone provenance
Detrital garnets have proved to be useful discriminators of North Sea sandstone provenance because they show a wide range of potential compositions and are relatively stable during burial diagenesis.Expand

A new approach to provenance studies: electron microprobe analysis of detrital garnets from Middle Jurassic sandstones of the northern North Sea
Reading provenance from heavy-mineral suites is hampered by the depletion of diagnostic, but unstable, heavy minerals through intrastratal solution, a common phenomenon in deep sedimentary basinsExpand

Evidence from detrital zircons for recycling of Mesoproterozoic and Neoproterozoic crust recorded in Paleozoic and Mesozoic sandstones of southern Libya
Abstract The geodynamic history of the Precambrian basement in central North Africa as well as the age and provenance of its sedimentary cover sequence are still poorly constrained. Here we presentExpand

Chapter 7 Stability of Detrital Heavy Minerals During Burial Diagenesis
Abstract Detrital heavy-mineral assemblages respond to increasing burial diagenesis by progressive dissolution of unstable components. Case studies from sedimentary basins worldwide show a uniformExpand

New insights into peri-Gondwana paleogeography and the Gondwana super-fan system from detrital zircon U-Pb ages
Abstract We present a synopsis of detrital zircon U–Pb ages of sandstones from North Africa and neighboring Israel and Jordan, which allows us to identify zones with characteristic sedimentExpand
