Van Wyck and Norman, 2004; Pufahl and Fralick, 2004; Medaris et al., 2005). K E Y W O R D S cosmogenic nuclides dating (26 Al/ 10 Be), incipient rifting, intracratonic morphodynamics, Okavango Basin, provenance analyses (Pb, Sr, Nd isotopes). This study highlights the need for a multi‐proxy provenance approach to constrain sedimentary recycling, particularly in compositionally mature sandstones, as the use of zircon geochronology alone would have led to erroneous provenance interpretations. Quartz‐rich sandstones can be produced through multiple sedimentary processes, potentially acting in combination, such as extensive sedimentary recycling or intense chemical weathering. A classification scheme for volcanic grains, involving five classes dependent on palaeovolcanic and neovolcanic sources. Decrease in Nd causes the increase in model age in the shales. Data, however, also show that local source areas produce sands that, when interpreted on the basis of their position on the QFL provenance-discrimination diagram, yield an erroneous interpretation of tectonic setting. The work illustrates how the current, state-of-the-art technology can be effectively utilized to address ongoing challenges in petroleum geoscience. The SG approach is required to quantify lithological controls on Qs, and include it into the stream power law. PDF | On Jan 1, 1991, P. D. W. Haughton and others published Sedimentary provenance studies | Find, read and cite all the research you need on ResearchGate It consists predominantly of andesitic clasts with conspicious augite and brown hornblende, but it also contains fragments of granite, metagabbro, mica-schist, serpentinite and glaucophane. Provenance studies utilizing these new dating methods can provide valuable insights into the depositional environments of these rocks which in turn help describe the tectonic evolution of the Lake Superior region. Geological Society London Special Publications, Application of analytical techniques to petroleum systems: An introduction, Formation of a Late Jurassic carbonate platform on top of the obducted Dinaridic ophiolites deduced from the analysis of carbonate pebbles and ophiolitic detritus in southwestern Serbia, Landscape responses to intraplate deformation in the Kalahari constrained by sediment provenance and chronology in the Okavango Basin, Geochemistry of Recent Brahmaputra River Sediments: Provenance, Tectonics, Source Area Weathering and Depositional Environment, Revealing exhumation of the central Alps during the Early Oligocene by detrital zircon U–Pb age and fission-track double dating in the Taveyannaz Formation. A high mean SiO2 concentration (72.9 wt.%) and low Al2O3 (11.1 wt.%) were consistent with a low abundance of shale and clay components. The paleocurrent data and lateral grading trends indicate most sediment was transported into the basin from its S/SW margin, implying long-distance transport (in excess of 470 km) and extrabasinal sediment supply. A classification of the main types of grains in arenite frameworks according to temporal (coeval versus non-coeval), spatial (intrabasinal versus extrabasinal) and compositional criteria. Subsequent milestones included Developments in Sedimentary Provenance Studies edited by A.C. Morton, S.P. sandstone. Investigating far-field tectonic events as drivers of provenance change in sedimentary basins. Multiple mineral chronometers were used to provide broad coverage of the closure temperature spectrum, from high-closure-temperature U-Pb zircon, through moderate-temperature U-Pb rutile, to low-temperature 40Ar-39Ar systems in muscovite and biotite. The samples are from the San Marcos arch, south-central Texas, at depths ranging from outcrop to 15,000 feet. Comparison of structural styles in the, Within high-density flood flows a prominent mechanism of gravel transport and deposition is by stream-driven, high-density traction carpet (with a rheology similar to grain flow). Based on comparable provenance signatures, the terrane is interpreted to have been conjugated to the northeastern South China Sea margin from the Mesozoic until the Oligocene spreading of the South China Sea. However, tectonic discrimination studies now look set to be eclipsed by techniques which exploit the characteristics of individual grains, rather than bulk populations (see below). Petrological data obtained during this study indicate that the QFL provenance-discrimination model generally yields a correct intepretation of tectonic setting when applied to Holocene sand from the Peninsular Ranges. SUCZEK, C.A. Sediment Provenance: Influences on Compositional Change from Source to Sink provides a thorough and inclusive overview that features data-based case studies on a broad range of dynamic aspects in sedimentary rock structure and deposition. 37 Ma). Access scientific knowledge from anywhere. Previous studies interpreted a transport system dominated by relatively low-energy meandering rivers where the packages of conglomerate were interpreted as channel lags flanked by sandstone and siltstone being point bar and overbank deposits. The aim of this project is (1) to study the grain-size dependence of garnet composition and (2) establish new interpretation schemes that allow for better discrimination of the detrital garnet minerals and their potential host rock lithologies based on robust probabilistic models. The older rocks record Caledonian processes on the margin of Avalonia during Early Ordovician time and convergence then soft collision with Laurentia during Silurian time. Post-Dingle Group ORS groups in the north of the peninsula were deposited in a syn-rift footwall block to the main Munster Basin. The results reveal provenance shifts that correspond to the paleogeography of the Palawan continental terrane evolving from an accretionary complex in the Jurassic to a rifted margin in the early Cenozoic and finally to a microcontinent in the middle Cenozoic. Sediment Routing Systems (SRS) and Sediment Generation (SG) are two branches of sedimentary geology which are complementary, although their full integration remains incomplete. This tangential shear stress is converted to dispersive pressure, which aids buoyancy and quasi-static grain-to-grain contacts in the support of the clasts within the gravel carpet. Sandstone petrological analyses reveal a prominent provenance transition to an â¦ This volume brings together new analytical approaches and describes how they can be applied to the study of petroleum systems. The study of sedimentary provenance interfaces several of the mainstream geological disciplines (mineralogy, geochemistry, geochronology, sedimentology, igneous and metamorphic petrology). Theoretical consideration further shows that gravelly traction carpets can be maintained in channels of relatively low gradient by the shear stress exerted by the high-density, sand-bearing turbulent flood flow above. LA-ICP-MS U-Pb zircon dating was performed on 27 samples (2,544 analyses in total) and revealed a complex overall age pattern dominated by <500 Ma ages, as well as several older populations, notably of ‘Pacific-Gondwana’ (~500-650 Ma) and ‘Grenvillean’ (900-1,250 Ma) age associations. 2. Furthermore, the rocks of the Sesia–Lanzo Zone or of equivalent units exposed at that time presumably provided the youngest basement zircon fission-track ages to the basin. The across-margin comparison of provenance signatures, favored by a comprehensive data compilation and a revision of the stratigraphic framework using the youngest zircon ages, provides insights into regional paleogeographic reconstructions from the Jurassic to the Miocene. However, the multi‐proxy approach also helps constrain the sedimentary history, and suggests that not all grain populations were derived directly from their original source. The effect of grain size on detrital mode data obtained by optical analyses. Interpretation of bulkâsediment geochemistry is one of several approaches for determining sediment provenance. These areas represent an uplifted and variably dissected Mesozoic magmatic arc. (3) From the Kimmeridgian/Tithonian boundary onwards uplift of the imbricated rocks below the obducted ophiolites triggered unroofing. Innovations in analytical methods will continue to play a key role in the industry moving forwards, as society shifts towards lower carbon energy systems. The timing and nature of the provenance change recorded in the Drummond Basin are consistent with it being driven by the contemporaneous but far-field intraplate Alice Springs Orogeny of central Australia. Neoproterozoic zircon ages can be associated either with provenance from the sedimentary succession of the Avalon Zone of eastern Newfoundland, or with provenance from felsic igneous rocks. Semantic Scholar is a free, AI-powered research tool for scientific literature, based at the Allen Institute for AI. After Iapetus closure, changes in the tectonic regime are believed to be a result of adjustments in the geometry of subduction of the Rheic Ocean. Sm-Nd analyses of sandstones and shales from the Wilcox Group (Upper Paleocene-Lower Eocene) suggest that the whole rock Sm-Nd signature is changed by burial diagenesis. The former Triassic–Middle Jurassic outer passive continental margin of the Neo-Tethys imbricated and a nappe stack in lower plate (wider Adriatic) position was formed in front of the propagating obducting ophiolites. 1. Sm and Nd reservoirs within the shale change considerably with progressive diagenesis. Both the advantages and limitations of each analytical tool are explored, and best practices for successful analytical workflows are discussed in light of a full integration into SRS research. Sediment and Sedimentary Rocks Sedimentary Rocks Rivers, oceans, winds, and rain runoff all have the ability to carry the particles washed off of eroding rocks. In addi-tion, this method is used to indicate the provenance direction and controlling factors of a sedimentary system. To investigate potential metamorphic sources, 18 detrital rutile samples were analysed for a total of 1,431 analyses. Quartz-rich sedimentation in the Drummond Basin was, therefore, more long-lived than previously envisaged, and once established, was not significantly disrupted by any contemporary volcanism or basin tectonics. The change in source areas is attributed to rearrangements of the drainage systems that were probably linked to vertical crustal movements on the margins of the Okavango Basin. The papers within this volume cover a wide range of topics and case studies, in the fields of fluid and isotope geochemistry, organic geochemistry, imaging and sediment provenance. Some minerals found in sedimentary rocks, such as zircon particles, can be dated Sun, and Y. Yan (2017), Sedimentary provenance constraints on drainage evolution models for SE Tibet: Evidence from detrital K-feldspar, Geophys. Deposition occurred under cool to semi-arid climatic conditions in an oxic environment. Abstract Understanding sedimentary provenance is essential when investigating clastic strata. The tectonically induced morphodynamics controlled the landscape evolution of the endorheic basin where vast lakes, wetlands and salt pans have developed through time. The integration of the two disciplines is fundamental to tackle some of the open problems in sedimentary geology, including (i) the dynamics regulating the generation and release of sediments from upstream catchments to the floodplains, (ii) particle trajectories, (iii) residence time and mineralogical modifications in temporary storage environments (iv) sediment selective extraction and (v) the shredding of environmental signal propagation in both (vi) actualistic and deep-time SRS. Approved on: 01/22/2018. The lag times of the youngest basement age populations (volcanic zircons excluded) are about 11 Myr.

Stream-driven, high-density gravelly traction carpets: possible deposits in the Trabeg Conglomerate... Subsurface Lessons from Tabernas Turbidites. Sedimentary rocks are derived from the erosion of other rocks and thus provide important records of the geological environment at the time they were de-posited. Organic sedimentary rocks such as coal, and some limestones are formed from the accumulation of plant or animal debris. Such material, called detritus, consists of fragments of rocks and minerals. Sedimentary provenance of the Hengyang and Mayang basins, SE China, and implications for the Mesozoic topographic change in South ChinaCraton: Evidence from detrital zircon geochronology Understanding the origins, or provenance, of a sedimentary deposit is an important aspect of geology. Average TiO2 values for most samples were higher than average crustal levels, consistent with the northern section of the Brahmaputra River being a potential resource for valuable Fe-Ti oxide heavy minerals. The main goal is to give a petrographical description of selected sedimentary formations from and to identify the provenance of these sedimentary units â¦ Major element chemistries and low to intermediate weathering indices for all sediments indicated a lack of substantial chemical weathering. Sediments from stable sand bars along a 40 km section of the Brahmaputra River in northern Bangladesh were analyzed for their major, trace and rare earth element contents to determine their provenance, compositional maturity, source area weathering and tectonic setting. During Tithonian times the obducted ophiolites were transported west-directed along low-angle fault plains near to its present position in the Dinarides. Closer to the source the grains will tend to be larger and more angular â¢ Chemical sedimentary rocks are formed from the precipitation of minerals from solution, e.g. Journal Sedimentary Petrology 55:340â346. 4-3 Ma during which the currently down-thrown (southern) block received a mixture of sediments mostly from the Choma-Kalomo, Ghanzi-Chobe, and Damara terranes, and possibly from the Lufilian Belt and/or Karoo basalts during earlier stages of deposition. Model ages increase most between 5,000 and 10,000 feet, within the zone of intense smectite illitization. The prolonged convergence along the Southeast Asian margin from the Mesozoic to Cenozoic shaped the region into a complex tectonic collage of microblocks of diverse origin and evolutionary history. Outcrop samples contain subequal concentrations of Sm and Nd in the acid-soluble and silicate fractions. Grains with a peri‐Gondwanan affinity appear to be first‐cycle and are potentially derived from south/southwest of the basin. Among these microblocks, the formation and paleogeographic evolution of the Palawan continental terrane remain issues of uncertainty and controversy, especially regarding the petrogenesis of the oldest rocks and the conjugate relationship with the South China margin. and INGERSOLL, R.V. The Drummond Basin of central Queensland straddles the boundary between the active, accretionary New England Orogen and the largely stabilised Thomson Orogen. Role of the Dingle Bay Lineament in the evolution of the Old Red Sandstone of southwest Ireland. The method may be particularly Resemblance of the sediment compositions to mean compositions from Higher Himalaya crystalline rocks pointed to these being potential source rocks but with components from a mafic source also present. ... Provenance analysis is a useful tool to understand the paleogeographic position and exhumation histories of ancient tectonic units and to unravel ancient sediment pathways (e.g.. ... Alternatively, basin evolution may be disrupted by external controls altering the typical course of sedimentation in the sink over time (e.g., Beerbower, 1964;Dickinson and Suczek, 1979;Dickinson, 1988). Zircon, together with U‐Pb geochronology from more labile phases such as apatite, can help distinguish first‐cycle vs polycyclic detritus. Cycles 2 and 3 are revised to represent a high-energy, poorly-channelised braided fluvial system of substantial size, with minor lacustrine facies. Sandstones from above the depth of intense feldspar reactions (ca. Compositional and textural criteria which manifest the presence of multicycle as opposed to first-cycle components in the siliciclastic sand framework. Furthermore, the characterisation of lithological compositions and textures, and the ability to predict changes to these during burial diagenesis, are often key in the success of a petroleum system (Kettanah et al., 2014;Tobin and Schwarzer, 2014). Results of mineralogy and geochemistry of the Neogene siliciclastic deposits of the Tukau and Belait formations were studied with the objectives to identify the provenance, estimate the intensity of continental weathering and infer the influence of The factors controlling the composition of clastic sediments, and associated biases, have been extensively studied in the past and included in landmark special volumes (Johnsson and Basu, 1993;Valloni and Basu, 2003;von Eynatten et al., 2012a;Caracciolo et al., 2016a;Weltje et al., 2018) and reviews from Suttner (1974), Basu (1985aBasu ( , 1985b, Pettijohn et al. The study of sedimentary provenance interfaces several of the mainstream geological disciplines (mineralogy, geochemistry, geochronology, sedimentology, igneous and metamorphic petrology). Sedimentary provenance studies can provide a finely-tuned record of sediment sourcing and tectonism. This constrains average moderate-to-high exhumation rate of 0.5–0.6 km/Myr in the pro-side of the orogenic wedge of the Central Alps during the late Eocene to early Oligocene. Its remit includes the location and nature of sediment source areas, the pathways by which sediment is transferred from source to basin of deposition, and the factors that influence the composition of sedimentary rocks (e.g. Integration of basin analysis with arenite petrography provides a powerful tool in obtaining palaeogeographic reconstructions. Taken as a whole, these data are consistent with input into the basin from the south and southwest, with the reworking of older sedimentary rocks, rather than intensive first‐cycle chemical weathering, likely explaining the compositional maturity of the sandstones. WELTJE, D. MUNSTERMAN I introduce all the elements which are necessary to both disciplines, with particular emphasis on quantitative provenance analysis (QPA). This study focuses on an example of a continental basin that was likely influenced by a far-field tectonic event that caused a major provenance change and altered basin evolution. Sedimentary provenance and maximum depositional age analysis of the Cretaceous? e.g., palaeogeographic reconstructions, constraining lateral displacement in orogens, characterizing crust which is eroded or no longer exposed, and testing tectonic models for uplift at orogenic scale, ... For reliable results, the macroscopic description of the clasts has to be combined with microfacies analysis (Flügel 2004) and biostratigraphic age dating, e.g., by their microfossil content. Three distinct groups are recognized on the basis of abundance: (1) quartz-poor graywackes (<15% quartz, average 58% SiO2, K2O/Na2O ≪ 1), (2) quartz-intermediate graywackes (15–65% quartz, average 68–74% SiO2, K2O/Na2O < 1), and (3) quartz-rich graywackes (> 65% quartz, average 89% SiO2, K2O/Na2O > 1). U-Pb Ages and Sedimentary Provenance of Detrital Zircons from Eastern Hayfork Meta-argillites, Sawyers Bar Area, Northwestern California W. G. Ernst,1,* Cailai Wu,2 Min Lai,2 and Xin Zhang2 1. Vertical provenance changes generally reflect either basin-forming tectonic processes, climate variations or far-field orogenies that can generate large-volumes of compositionally distinct sediment that overwhelms local sediment supply. Their average chemical composition approximates the average composition of these arcs and that of tholeiitic andesite. Determining the provenance of such sedimentary rocks can be challenging due to low amounts of accessory minerals, the fact that the primary mineralogy may have been altered during transport, storage or burial, and difficulties in the recognition of polycyclic components. (2) During a period of relative tectonic quiescence, formation of a Late Jurassic carbonate platform started around the Oxfordian/Kimmeridgian boundary on top of the obducted ophiolites. Sedimentary provenance analysis is a powerful tool for reconstructing sedimentary source-to-sink dynamics based on the determination of mineralogical, geochemical, â¦ Materials subject to study are as diverse asâ¦Â, Research advance in sediment provenance of the Qiongdongnan Basin, Geochemical discrimination of clastic sedimentary rock sources, Reconstructing provenance interaction of multiple sediment sources in continental down-warped lacustrine basins: An example from the Bodong area, Bohai Bay Basin, China, Fingerprinting historical fluvial sediment fluxes, Sediment Provenance: Influences on Compositional Change from Source to Sink, Tracing tectonic deformation using the sedimentary record: an overview, Pattern of Geochemical and Sedimentological Variability of the Albian to Cenomanian Upper Bima Sandstone, Benue Trough, Nigeria: Implications on Tectonic provenance and Source Area Weathering, Silurian turbidite provenance on the northern Avalonian margin, Unraveling the origin of the ParnaÃba Basin: Testing the rift to sag hypothesis using a multi-proxy provenance analysis, Geochemistry and detrital geochronology of stream sediments from East Timor: implications for the origin of source units, Petrography and geochemistry of feldspathic and mafic sediments of the northeastern Pacific margin, Petrofacies and Provenance of Late Mesozoic Forearc Basin, Northern and Central California, Exceptions to the Relationship Between Plate Tectonics and Sandstone Composition, Comparison of isotopic and petrographic provenance indicators in sediments from Tertiary continental basins of New Mexico, Isotopic provenance of sandstones from the Eocene Tyee Formation, Oregon Coast Range, Effects of sedimentary sorting on neodymium isotopes in deep-sea turbidites. The Alice Spring Orogeny is known to have caused extensive exhumation and syn-orogenic sedimentation in central and northern Australia, but its influence on the eastern margin of the continent remains unknown. The following concepts are outlined 10,000 feet have Nd model ages of 1500 - 2000 Ma. It is known that La and Th are more concentrated in silicic than basic igneous rocks. 3-2 Ma, (c) Sediments on both sides of the Gumare Fault share a similar source (Angolan Shield) with minor distinct contributions to the downthrown block from the Kasai Craton and local sources input to the upthrown block, and (d) Regional distribution of aeolian sand since at least 1 Ma. The early erosional products resedimented in adjacent basins near to uplifting orogens, which underwent unroofing, were only rarely identified. The provenance shift in the Drummond Basin coincides with a major intraplate tectonic event in central Australia, the Alice Spring Orogeny. PDF Link PDF Add to Citation Manager Sand and gravel provenance in the Waipaoa River system: Sedimentary recycling in an actively deforming forearc basin, North Island, New Zealand Grains with a Laurentian or a Caledonian affinity have likely been recycled through Devonian basins to the south. These gravel carpets are envisaged to form the basal portion of a bipartite high-density flood flow, decoupled from an overlying sand- and silt-laden turbulent flow. A complete marine transgressionâregression sequence with twoâsided provenance characterizes the late PermianâTriassic sedimentary rocks in the southern NQB. The Acadian transpressional and Munster Basin extensional structures were reactivated or overprinted in the Variscan deformation such that Acadian folds are transected by Variscan cleavage in both plan and vertical views. In the Inner Dinarides of southwestern Serbia, Tithonian polymictic carbonate turbidites, deposited in a deep-water foreland basin below overthrust ophiolites, contain Kimmeridgian–Tithonian shallow-water clasts, Triassic open-marine limestone and radiolarite clasts, and chrome spinels of a harzburgitic source (suprasubduction and MOR ophiolites). This allows for the identification of sedimentary source areas and for the reconstruction of palaeogeography (Clements et al., 2012;Dickinson, 1988;Fedo et al., 2003), palaeodrainage (Di Giulio et al., 2017;Franklin et al., 2019;Mark et al., 2016;Tyrrell et al., 2010), palaeoclimate (Bailey et al., 2013) and palaeoenvironment (Bateman and Catt, 2007;Romans et al., 2016). Stream-driven gravelly traction carpets are expected to produce sheet-like units of clast- to matrix-supported conglomerate, characterized by a parallel or an a(p)a(i) clast fabric. Double dating of zircons with the fission-track and the U–Pb methods is applied on samples from the Taveyannaz Formation to reconstruct the exhumation history of the Central-Western Alps and to understand the syn-collisional magmatism along the Periadriatic lineament. The terrane likely existed as a northern passive margin of the proto−South China Sea from the latest Cretaceous to early Cenozoic before the oceanic crust of the latter was emplaced over the former during the Oligocene−Miocene. Geochemical data of heavy minerals usually show a wider distribution in the sediments than the data of heavy minerals measured in the bedrocks. The structural depression that occupies the Okavango Basin in southern Africa comprises a depo-centre within the intracratonic Kalahari Basin where sediments of the Cenozoic Kalahari Group have accumulated. Oligocene sediment pathways from source to sink crossed further crystalline basement units and sedimentary covers before entering the basin from the southeast. This hypothesis is supported by chemical comparisons. The acid-soluble reservoir in deeper samples contains progressively less Sm and Nd, and higher Sm/Nd.

Mountain uplift and unroofing caused the partly erosion of the Late Jurassic carbonate platform, the underlying ophiolites and the Triassic–Jurassic nappe stack consisting of outer shelf sedimentary rocks. These units may be ungraded, normally or inversely graded, depending on the rate of shear, the viscosity of the flow and the celerity of deposition. Sedimentary response to a collision orogeny recorded in detrital zircon provenance of Greater Caucasus foreland basin sediments. They are composed mostly of Cretaceous plutonic rocks and Mesozoic greenschist to amphibolite facies metasedimentary and metavolcanic rocks. Geochemically, the sediments were classified as litharenites and the Index of Compositional Variability (ICV) varied between 1.4 and 2.0, indicating low compositional and mineralogical maturity. Simultaneously, the up-thrown (northern) block received sediments from more distant Archean sources in the Zimbabwe and/or Kasai cratons, (b) Hiatus in sedimentation occurred at both sites between ca. 10,000 feet) have whole rock Nd model ages of 1400 - 1500 Ma, whereas sandstones buried deeper than ca. ithology. Sedimentary rocks are an important source of information about previous orogenic conditions and the composition of which may describe the evolution of provenance and tectonic setting. All rights reserved. However, several factors need to be considered if ancient geological settings are to be correctly interpreted. On the contrary Co, Sc, and Cr are more enriched in basic rocks. Factors which complicate the connection between source area and depositional basin in palaeogeographic reconstructions. This study highlights that deposition in sedimentary basins is not only controlled by host basin dynamics but can be fundamentally altered by extrabasinal processes and sediment supply. Several examples already documented in the literature. QPA and the ‘Provenance Toolbox’ provide the compositional framework which is necessary for the characterisation of the erosional products. confirms the application and the importance of heavy minerals in sedimentary provenance analysis.
