Abstract:

The illite-chlorite association characterizes the sediments of the Arctic Ocean. These clay minerals indicate a terrigenous origin. To this is added about 20 quartz and a little carbonate. The examination of the surface portion of 25 cores obtained from two fairly central regions of the Arctic Ocean permits us to present a few findings about sedimentation in that ocean. Author
