Sediment production under semi-arid climatic conditions using heavy mineral and petrographical data – a case study from the recent Kunene river system, northern Namibia

Jonas Kraus, Ali Abbas Wajid, Laura Stutenbecker & Matthias Hinderer
Provenance techniques are widely applied in resolving the origin of ancient sediment successions. Petrographic signatures, however, are controlled by a complex interplay of rock type, weathering mode as well as sediment transport, thus making the interpretation of data often ambiguous. One way to improve our understanding on these mechanisms is to study modern drainage systems. We selected the Kunene River in northern Namibia as a case study. This river system is well suited for such...
