Provenance of Late Cretaceous to Paleocene submarine fan sandstones in the Norwegian Sea: Integration of heavy mineral, mineral chemical and zircon age data

Morton, Andrew; Whitham, A G; Fanning, Christopher


This paper describes a strategy for effective discrimination and provenance evaluation of sandstones transported by different sediment dispersal systems using an integrated programme of heavy mineral analysis, mineral chemistry and zircon age dating. Sandstones derived from different source regions are initially discriminated using provenance-sensitive heavy mineral parameters (ratios of abundances of stable, hydraulically equivalent minerals). Differences between the heavy mineral populations...[Show more]
