(Table 1) Distribution of TiO2 in DSDP Leg 22 Holes, supplement to: Schmitz, Birger (1987): The TiO2/Al2O3 ratio in the Cenozoic Bengal Abyssal Fan sediments and its use as a paleostream energy indicator. Marine Geology, 76, 195-206

Birger Schmitz
The TiO2/Al2O3 ratio in the Cenozoic Bengal Abyssal Fan sediments displays decisive potential as a paleostream velocity indicator. The reason for this is that, even in the finest fan suspendates, hydrodynamic sorting determines the amounts of heavy TiO2-rich minerals relative to lighter Al2O3-rich clay minerals.In five Deep Sea Drilling Project cores (213 - 217), which have been recovered in, and south of, the Bay of Bengal, TiO2/Al2O3 ratios increase linearly with time from the Late...
