Grain shape and mineralogy of loess on New Zealands South Island, supplement to: Harris, Stuart A (1983): Infilled fissures in loess, Banks Peninsula, New Zealand. Polarforschung, 53(2), 49-58

Stuart A Harris
Infilled fissures are described from the interface between two loess deposits on Banks Peninsula, South Island, New Zealand. Both loesses differ from the other loesses by having a solifluction deposit at their base consisting of angular basalt fragments of the same angularity as fresh frost shattered basalt mixed with the loess.
