Record #35929:

An investigation of the fine fraction of some rock and soil materials from Antarctica / G.G.C. Claridge.

Title: An investigation of the fine fraction of some rock and soil materials from Antarctica / G.G.C. Claridge.
Author(s): Claridge, G. G. C.
Date: 1961.
Abstract: Analyses of the clay mineral content of Beacon Sandstone samples from Victoria Land indicate that the rocks were probably derived from the erosion of a schist or similar metamorphic rock under a climate too arid to permit much hydration of the mica. A soil sample from Skelton Glacier contained talc, indicating that the materials may have been derived from physical comminution of rocks.
