Record #118491:

Mineral magnetic analyses as a means of lithostratigraphic correlation and provenance indication of glacial diamicts: intra- and inter-unit variation / John Walden, John P. Smith, Roger V. Dackombe.

Title: Mineral magnetic analyses as a means of lithostratigraphic correlation and provenance indication of glacial diamicts: intra- and inter-unit variation / John Walden, John P. Smith, Roger V. Dackombe.
Author(s): Walden, John.
Smith, John P.
Dackombe, Roger V.
Date: 1992.
In: Journal of Quaternary Science : JQS. (1992.), Vol. 7(3) (1992)
Abstract: Presents data on intra- and inter-unit variation of mineral magnetic properties of Manx diamicts, analyzing results qualitatively and quantitatively. Level of intra-unit variation is significantly less than level of inter-unit variation and shows some relationship to basic stratigraphy. Previous correlations based upon field evidence of diamict units exposed on east and west coasts of Isle of Man are supported by mineral magnetic properties. Statistically significant differences in magnetic mineralogy of stratigraphically lower Wyllin and Shellag tills and upper Orrisdale, Bellavarkish and Ballaquark tills suggests distinct provenances for these sediments, allowing potential source areas to be suggested.
