Chemical and mineralogical heterogeneities of weathered igneous profiles : implications for landslide investigations

  title={Chemical and mineralogical heterogeneities of weathered igneous profiles : implications for landslide investigations},
  author={Nurdan S. Duzgoren-Aydin and Adnan Aydin},
Landslides in tropical and sub-tropical regions are generally associated with weathered rock profiles which often possess chemical and mineralogical heterogeneities at materialand mineral-scales. Such heterogeneities reach a climax by the occurrences of oxyhydroxideand clayrich zones. Weakness and low permeability of these zones makes them ideal for the development of slip zones along which landslides take place. This paper describes the nature and distribution of chemical and mineralogical… CONTINUE READING
