Mineralogical and Geochemical Approaches to Provenance

Editors: E. Troy Rasbury, Sidney R. Hemming, and Nancy R. Riggs
Major advances have been made in the use of elemental and isotopic analyses of individual minerals and whole rocks in providing insights into the source of sediments and sedimentary rocks as well as the unroofing histories of the landscapes that were eroded to produce the sediments. The eleven chapters in this volume are quite varied and are arranged into three general categories, although many of the chapters combine several of these approaches to address provenance questions: (1) isotope and fission-track dating of minerals, and additional insights from geochemistry and radiogenic isotopes; (2) uses of heavy minerals, relative abundance, isotope fingerprinting, and compositions of the minerals; and (3) automated point counting.
