The nature of calcareous deposits along pan margins in eastern central Namibia

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This report describes a mainly petrographical study of calcareous deposits that are associated with pan basins in eastern central Namibia, aimed at establishing the mode of development of this common type of formation. Some observations are also reported for two other calcareous formations that are exposed around several basins, documenting their difference in nature and origin with the deposits that are the main subject of this study. The results indicate that a lacustrine rather than purely pedogenic origin should also be considered for calcareous deposits that commonly occur along pan margins in other parts of southern Africa
