Depth distribution of pH, EC, CaCO3, OC, particle size distribution and textural class of the Bhognipur core.
... The XRD analysis of coresediments from IITK core shows dominance of mica in the silt (50–2μm) and coarse clay (2–0.2μm) fractions that also contain mixed-layer minerals, smectite, vermiculite, HIV, PCh, kaolin, feldspar and quartz (see Figs. 1–3 in the supplementary material). The fine clay fractions (<0.2μm) are dominated by mica and smectite along with vermiculite, HIV, PCh and kaolin. The smectite is predominantly LCS and dioctahedral in nature in fine clay fraction but silt and coarse clay fractions are dominantly HCS. The collapsing characteristics of K-saturated fine clay on heating from 110°C to 550°C indicate that most of the LCS has hydroxy-interlayering (Harward et al., 1969)....
