Heavy mineral alanysis of surface sediments from the west-Pakistan and the adjacent continental shelf


Sediment samples from the southern West-Pakistan and the adjacent shelf have been studied for their heavy mineral contents and compositions. It is shown that the sediment load of the Indus river has influenced the sedimentation in the shelf areas south, southwest and in front of the Indus delta to a greater extent than in northerly direction. In the northern shelf region the smaller local rivers have dominated the marine sedimentation.
