Derivation of the chalk superficial deposits of the North Downs, England : an application of discriminant analysis

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper briefly surveys the role of superficial sediments in landscape models of the last 50 years and the methods used to characterize them. Stepwise discriminant analysis was then used on particle size and heavy mineral data from 276 sediment samples, including 39 from published sources, to distinguish between Palaeocene and Plio-Pleistocene deposits, found above the Cretaceous Chalk in southeast England, and to determine parent materials of the soils and superficial deposits of the central North Downs
