Heavy minerals and garnet geochemistry of stream sediments and bedrocks from the Almklovdalen area, Western Gneiss Region, SW Norway: Implications for provenance analysis

Article English OPEN
Krippner, A; Meinhold, G; Morton, AC; Schoenig, J; von Eynatten, H;

Detrital heavy minerals commonly document the geological setting in the source area, hence they are widely used in sedimentary provenance analysis. In heavy mineral studies, the 63–125 and 63–250 μm grain size fractions are most commonly used. Heavy mineral data and gar... View more
