Transport directions for clastic material of Aptian-Senomanian deposits in western Turkmenia

  • M. E. Demina


Transport directions for clastic material in Aptian-Senomanian time in western Turkmenia is the subject of this paper. Results were obtained by investigating the heavy minerals of sand deposits and stilizing the linear discriminant function. Mahalonobis' generalized distance was used as a measure of interrelations between samples. The linear discriminant function allowed separation of samples into two groups. Source of material for both groups was from the southeast. Comparison of all investigated sections with Sangu-Dag as the key section revealed some specific information about sediment transport direction.
