Late Quaternary fluctuations of the Leeuwin Current and palaeoclimates on the adjacent land masses: clay mineral evidence

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

Description

Clay minerals eroded from soils by rivers and wind action become entrained in shallow- as well as deep-water masses of the surrounding seas. Their pattern on the sea floor gives clues to their propagation by ocean currents. Clay mineral assemblages in sediment cores can be used as a useful proxy to decipher past changes in the intensity of ocean currents or in the nature of the palaeoclimatic processes on the adjacent landmasses. Three cores taken from beneath the path of the present-day...[Show more]
