New Chinese Loess heavy mineral paper

Posted on 03/05/2013

A paper Tom, Anna, Eduardo and Sergio were involved in has just been published in Palaeo3! The paper was written with Professor Junsheng Nie at Lanzhou Univeristy and it compares two different methods of heavy mineral analysis, the traditional method of using a microscope and a newer technique called QEMSCAN. Both methods have consistent patterns and give insight into the provenance of Chinese loess. 

The reference for the paper is; Junsheng Nie; Wenbin Peng; Katharina  Pfaff; Andreas  Moeller; Eduardo  Garzanti; Sergio  Andò; Thomas  Stevens; Anna  Bird; Hong  Chang; Yougui  Song; Shanpin  Liu; Shunchuan  Ji.2013. Controlling factors on heavy mineral assemblages in Chinese loess and Red Clay. Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology
