A review of lamellae

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Lamellae, bands of increased silicate clay and iron, are globally ubiquitous in Quaternary sands and have been studied for almost a century. However, their study is hampered by confusion in the literature. This paper reviews recent research on these confusing features outlining 3 general formation pathways : pedogenic, petrogenic, and pedo-petrogenic, and within these numerous specific evolutions. It will help Quaternary scientists understand that lamellae are confusing features and should not be assumed to have climatic significance or indicate buried soils when encountered at depth
