Smoothed abundance of bulk mineralogy in the Cenozoic sediments of core CRP-3, supplement to: Neumann, M; Ehrmann, Werner (2001): Mineralogy of sediments from CRP-3, Victoria Land Basin, Antarctica, as revealed by x-ray diffraction. Terra Antartica, 8(4), 523-532

M Neumann & Werner Ehrmann
The mineralogy of the lower Oligocene (to possibly upper Eocene) sediments of core CRP-3 drilled on the continental shelf of McMurdo Sound in the Ross Sea, Antarctica, has been examined by the X-ray diffraction method. Quartz, plagioclase K- feldspar and pyroxene are the most important non-clay minerals. Amphibole occurs in minor amounts. The composition of the sediments points exclusively to an origin in the Transantarctic Mountains for the detrical components. There, the plutonic and metamorphic...
