Clay mineral distribution in surface sediments, supplement to: Nürnberg, Dirk; Levitan, Mikhail A; Pavlidis, Yury A; Shelekhova, E S (1995): Distribution of clay minerals in surface sediments from the eastern Barents and south-western Kara seas. Geologische Rundschau, 84(3), 665-682

Surface samples from the eastern Barents and south-western Kara seas have been analysed for clay mineralogy. Transport paths, the role of regional sources and local bedrock outcrops and the influence of hydrodynamic and glacigenous processes for clay distribution on the shelves are discussed in relation to central Arctic Ocean deep sea and sea ice sediments. Franz Josef Land and Novaya Zemlya show significantly different clay mineral associations. Although smectite concentrations are fairly high, Franz Josef...
