GEOL342 - Sedimentation and Stratigraphy

Bedform deposition and erosion:. Small irregularities in the bottom cause a slight turbulence as flow is diverted up and around them such that the flow over an obstacle no longer hugs the bottom, but separates from it at the point of flow separation (analogous to a stall in an aircraft wing). This flow separation creates a zone of reverse circulation downstream of the obstacle.

Oct 29, 1999· The 17 rare earth elements, or lanthanides, consist of elements 21 (scandium), 39 (yttrium), and 57 (lanthanum) to 71 (lutetium). The rare earths were so named because of their low concentration in minerals which were scarce. However, some of the elements are not as rare as once thought. Today, the rare earths are important for their use in ...

The relative abundance of rare earth elements in sediments has been suggested as a tool for determining their source rocks. This correlation requires that weathering, erosion, and sedimentation do not alter the REE abundances, or do so in a predictable manner.
