Surinam and the African Continent: A Clay-mineralogical Study of Sea Water Solids: NOTES

F. A. van Baren, H. J. Von M. Harmse (2)


In order to check whether inter-continental transport by oceanic currents could be an argument in explaining the clay-mineral distribution in coastal regions, sea water samples collected during a traverse of the Atlantic Ocean along the 10° N parallel from Natal to Curacao and back were studied on the composition of the solid material. No indication was found that such a transport would be of any importance.
