Argentine Basin Sediment Sources as Indicated by Quartz Surface Textures

David Krinsley, Pierre E. Biscaye, Karl K. Turekian


Distinctive quartz surface textures, as determined by scanning electron microscopy, can be used to identify sources of sediment in the Argentine Basin. Glacial quartz from the south, fluvial-littoral quartz from the continental margin, and windblown hot-dune sand can be identified and their distributions tentatively assessed.
