Record #103284:

Glacially-crushed quartz grains in Late Quaternary deposits in the Virunga Mountains, Rwanda - indicators of wind transport from the north? / William C. Mahaney.

Title: Glacially-crushed quartz grains in Late Quaternary deposits in the Virunga Mountains, Rwanda - indicators of wind transport from the north? / William C. Mahaney.
Author(s): Mahaney, William C.
Date: 1990.
In: Boreas. (1990.), Vol. 19(1) (1990)
Abstract: Most likely source of glacial grains is Ruwenzori Massif, 150 km north. This first evidence for long-distance aeolian transported glacially-crushed sand grains in these mountains is discussed and evaluated.
Notes:

Boreas. Vol. 19(1) :81-89 (1990).

Keywords: 551.332.2 -- Drift, glacial. Deposits.
551.332 -- Glacial deposition.
E7 -- Glaciology: glacial geology and ice ages.
(67) -- Equatorial and central African states.
