Clay mineral distribution in surface sediments between Indonesia and NW Australia - source and transport by ocean currents

Gingele, Franz; De Deckker, Patrick; Hillenbrand, Claus-Dieter


The clay mineral distribution in sediments between Indonesia and NW Australia has been assessed on the basis of 166 core-top samples. Clay mineral assemblages are closely related to the geology and weathering regime of the adjacent hinterland and allow the distinction of four clay mineral provinces. Three provinces, Western, Central and Eastern Province are situated along the Indonesian Islands Arc, from Sumatra in the west to Timor in the east. Illite is the major clay mineral of the Western...[Show more]
