This article describes the methods of sample preparation and X-ray diffraction data analysis of X-ray mineralogy (XM) samples submitted to the DSDP Xray Mineralogy Laboratory at the University of California, Riverside. The sample preparation procedure, the method of diffraction data analysis, and the methods of data handling are designed to efficiently meet the most general needs of geologists in view of the large number and the wide variety of sediment samples submitted for X-ray diffraction… Expand

Use of SEM/EDS and X-ray diffraction analyses for sand transport studies, Lake Erie, Ohio
Natural tracers offer advantages over artificial tracers because larger volumes can be studied over longer time intervals. However, natural tracers present their own set of problems, includingExpand
Distribution of heavy and clay minerals in coastal sediment of Jijel, East of Algeria: indicators of sediment sources and transport and deposition environments
The identification of bulk, clay (<2 μm), and heavy (63–200 μm) minerals has been investigated on 42 coastal samples along the Jijel bay (Eastern Algeria). The mineralogical assemblages are used toExpand
Lead isotopic analysis within a multiproxy approach to trace pottery sources. The example of White Slip II sherds from Late Bronze Age sites in Cyprus and Syria
Lead isotope analyses were carried out on fragments of White Slip II ware, a Late Bronze Age Cypriote pottery ware, and on raw materials possibly used for their production. Sherds originate fromExpand
Chert Petrology and Geochemistry, Mid-Pacific Mountains and Hess Rise, Deep Sea Drilling Project Leg 62
Sixty-five chert, porcellanite, and siliceous-chalk samples from Deep Sea Drilling Project Leg 62 were analyzed by petrography, scanning electron microscopy, analysis by energy-dispersive X-rays,Expand
Data report : composition of clay minerals from hemiplegic sediments at Hydrate Ridge, Cascadia subduction zone
This report describes the results of semiquantitative analysis of clay mineral composition by X-ray diffraction. The samples consist of hemipelagic mud and mudstone cored from Hydrate Ridge duringExpand
Occurrences of kaolin in Koutaba (west Cameroon): Mineralogical and physicochemical characterization for use in ceramic products
Abstract Thirty clay samples collected from three hills in Koutaba (west Cameroon) were characterized in order to evaluate their potential use as raw materials for ceramics. After preliminaryExpand
Clay mineralogy, chemical and geotechnical characterization of bentonite from Beni Bou Ifrour Massif (the Eastern Rif, Morocco)
Abstract Bentonite clay mineral is widely present in the Gourougou Volcanic Massif and its satellites located in NE Morocco. It originated from the alteration of pyroclastic flows in shallow marineExpand
