Mineralogy of northern Indian Ocean surface sediments and of suspended sediments of Indian rivers (Table 2 and 5), supplement to: Goldberg, Edward D; Griffin, John J (1970): The sediments of the northern Indian Ocean. Deep-Sea Research and Oceanographic Abstracts, 17(3), 513-537

Edward D Goldberg & John J Griffin
The solid phases from surface sediments, atmospheric dusts, and rivers of the Indian Ocean environment have been analyzed for their clay minerals and quartz. Such data have been used to delimit the transport paths and sources of the detrital minerals in the oceanic deposits. Diagnostic in distinguishing fluvial and eolian inputs to the northern Indian Ocean is a combination of the clay mineral assemblages and of their geographic distributions.River borne solids are the primary components...
