Sedimentology and mineralogy of surface sediments from the Chilean continental margin, supplement to: Lamy, Frank; Hebbeln, Dierk; Wefer, Gerold (1998): Terrigenous sediment supply along the Chilean continental margin: modern regional patterns of texture and composition. Geologische Rundschau, 87(3), 477-494

Frank Lamy, Dierk Hebbeln & Gerold Wefer
The regional patterns of texture and composition of modern continental slope and pelagic sediments off Chile between 25°S and 43°S reflect the latitudinal segmentation of geological, morphological, and climatic features of the continental hinterland. Grain-size characteristics are controlled by the grain-size of source rocks, the weathering regime, and mode of sediment input (eolian off northern Chile vs fluvial further south). Bulk-mineral assemblages reveal a low grade of maturity. Regional variations are governed by the source-rock...
