Heavy minerals and provenance of late quaternary

Heavy minerals in radiocarbon-dated Nile Delta core sections indicate that, during the past 35,000 years, deposits in this major eastern Mediterranean depocenter have been derived primarily from the Ethiopian Plateau. Northward sediment transport has been largely by the Blue Nile

Mica and Heavy Minerals as Markers to Map Nile

Stanley, J.-D. and Clemente, P.L., 2014. Mica and heavy minerals as markers to map Nile Delta coastline displacements during the Holocene. Mica and heavy minerals in sediments of Egypt's Nile Delta are examined to test if measured proportions of these two mineral groups and their distributions can be used to define former coastline positions and their shifts in time and space during the Holocene.

Spatial variations in heavy minerals and patterns of ...

Sand samples were collected along 34 beach profiles spanning the 240-km length of the Nile Delta in order to examine the sorting patterns of heavy minerals that develop during cross-shore and alongshore sediment transport. Factor analysis of the heavy-mineral contents shows that two mineral factors or groups result from sorting due to the contrasting densities and sizes of the grains.

Ecological Risk Assessment of Heavy Metals along

The use of drainage water in the irrigation of agroecosystem is associated with environmental hazards, and can pose threats to human health. Nine heavy metals (Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Co, Cr, Ni, Cd and Pb) along three main drains in the middle Nile Delta were measures in the sediments, roots and shoots of three common macrophytes (Echinochloa stagnina, Phragmites australis and Typha domingensis).

Mineral concentration and ilmenite characterization of the Thothapally — Kayamkulam Barrier Island of the southern Kerala has been studied. 96.86% concentrations of heavy minerals are recorded in the surficial and core samples (4 m) in the southern Kayamkulam and northern Thothapally areas. The total heavy mineral content decreases with depth.

Wave Dominated Deltas - SEPM Strata

Example: Nile delta This delta begins to split into distributaries at Cairo, Egypt, more than 160 km inland, and fans out over the entire delta. Before the construction of the Aswan High Dam, the Nile's annual flood briefly covered much of the delta each year and deposited a thick layer of silty mud.
