Micromorphology and chemical weathering of a K-rich trachyandesite and an associated sedimentary cover (Parkes, SE Australia)

Tonui, Eric; Eggleton, Richard; Taylor, Graham M

Description

The micromorphology, composition and sequential formation of weathering products of a K-rich trachyandesite and an associated sedimentary cover at Parkes, SE Australia are described. This has been achieved using a combination of mineralogical (optical, X-ray microdiffraction and SEM-EDXA microanalysis) and chemical (X-ray Fluorescence) techniques. The weathering profiles have developed in a low-altitude, relatively flat landscape setting. The following processes are dominant: (a) weathering of...[Show more]
