Abstract Detailed mineralogical investigations of dust fallout deposits collected at eleven locations in Kuwait during April 1979–March 1980 were carried out. The mineralogy of five size fractions, medium sand, fine sand, very fine sand, coarse silt and clay, was determined. Occurrence, frequency and potential sources of the mineral grains that form the various size fractions are discussed and the gross mineralogical composition of the dust fallout calculated. It was found that dust fallout… CONTINUE READING
