Furthermore, the detrital zircon is not only the important component of clastic sediment but distributes widely in various clastic rocks, whose U-Pb dating can provide an important information on the age of sedimentary rocks, accordingly, in combination with the natures of geo-tectonic and outcrop of the volcanism or the intrusion in the studied region, we may find out the information on the source of sediments deposited in different times.
The subsidence center of the Miocene-Quaternary foreland basin has migrated northward to Yecheng-Kashi where 5000～6000m of coarse clastic sediments have been accumulated as a result of rapid subsidence.
The Caledonian appearance of zircons indicates that the origin of these clastic sediments might originate from the Northern Qinling belt,other zircons originated mainly from the north margin of the Yangtze craton and the south Qinling belt.
The offsets of δ11B values are not related to the contents of clastic sediment and to the addition of boron.
Organic matter content is low in sediments because of increased non-carbonate, clastic sediment yield from watersheds.
Ancient deposits of ferricrete (stratified iron oxyhydroxide or clastic sediment cemented by stratified iron oxyhydroxide) are present in headwater streams draining an historic mining district in the Rocky Mountains, USA.
The superellipsoidal form of coarse clastic sediment particles
SPM within the turbidity maximum comprised very fine-grained material and its low organic content demonstrated that the SPM was essentially mineral, clastic sediment derived originally from erosion and decay of crustal rocks.
It is shown that coarse-clastic sediments of fan formations accumulated in grabens among ancient denudation plains due to the destruction of rocks in near-wall benches.
The Late Riphean crustal material in Caledonian and Hercynian structures related to the development of the corresponding oceanic basins most probably consisted of clastic sediments or relatively small fragments of the Late Riphean crust.
The Middle to lower Upper Devonian succession of the Rügen Depression in NE Germany consists of largely clastic sediments, whereas the Upper Devonian deposits are mixed carbonate and clastic.
Deflation rates of different clastic sediments in the arid regions of China
The source rocks are mainly felsic clastic sediments with a small amount of intermediate magmatite in the Zhangbaling Group.
