Fingerprinting Australia's rivers with clay minerals and the application for the marine record of climate change

Gingele, Franz; De Deckker, Patrick


Clay mineral assemblages from sediments taken from 46 rivers around Australia and in the Murray-Darling Basin were analysed and found to be characteristic for each individual river and drainage area. These clay mineral fingerprints are not necessarily associated with present climate in the drainage area, but represent an input from a local clay reservoir that was formed from the weathering of a typical combination of local bedrock over prolonged periods of time. Consequently, the clay...[Show more]
