Luc Harnois1
TL;DR: In this article, a new chemical index of weathering that can be applied to modern soils and Precambrian paleosis is proposed: CIW = [Al2O3].

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers combined have formed one of the largest deltas in the world, comprising some 23,000 sq. miles as discussed by the authors, and the large discharge and heavy sediment load cause the rivers to be extremely unstable, and the channels are constantly migrating laterally.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The classification, tectonic settings, stratigraphy, and early diagenesis of carbonate ramp systems are reviewed in this paper, where a range of wave-, storm-, and tide-dominated ramps can be recognized and this form the most convenient basis for ramp classification.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors show that sulfate reduction in diagenetic environments occurs in two mutually exclusive thermal regimes, i.e., low-temperature and hightemperature, respectively.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors proposed that an ideal sequence should consist of four systems tracts, i.e., transgressive and highstand tract, developed during rising base-level, and lowstand tract developed as relative sea-level begins to rise after sequence boundary formation, and the forced regressive wedge system tract consists of shallow-water stranded parasequences and basin-floor fan or apron sediments, deposited at the toe-of-slope.
