Tracing seawater

2021-6-5 · This indicates that the sand- and silt-sized heavy mineral fractions are not a major source of the HREE-enriched patterns of the residues. Otherwise, the light residual fractions would exhibit weaker HREE-enriched patterns; however, this is not seen in Fig. 4C. Since quartz and feldspar are not the major contributors of the HREE-enriched signatures of the light residual fractions, the remaining clay-sized constitutes can be regarded as the most likely HREE …

2013-6-5 · It has been well documented that REEs are generally enriched in clay and silt fractions, but depleted in sand fractions because of dilution by quartz and carbonate minerals (McLennan, 1989, Vital et al., 1999). The Taiwanese river drainage basins have completely different geologic, geographic and climatic conditions from those of Chinese mainland rivers.

Abstract. The storm events in the Baltic Sea are examined in connection with the main weather patterns grouped into the circulation types (CTs), and their changes in present climate. A calendar of storms was derived from results of wave model SWAN (Simulating WAves Nearshore) experiments for 1948-2011.

2015-10-12 · The HREE-enriched heavy minerals significantly influence the REE compositions, reflecting the control of provenance (e.g., Rollinson 2013). We note that there is a poorly positive correlation with LREE and a negative correlation with HREE, which suggests that the LREE chemistry is partly controlled by the presence or absence of key heavy minerals, especially monazite or zircon, which in turn is …

Abrasion by ice, water, and wind processes loaded with sediments can have immense cutting power. The world''s greatest gorges, valleys, and ravines are largely a result of abrasion. In glacial regions, massive masses of moving ice embedded with soil and rock particles grind down rocks in their path, carrying away large volumes of material.
