A petrographic study of a tropical black earth and grey earth from the Gold Coast



A petrographic study of a tropical black earth and grey earth from the Gold Coast



Journal of Soil Science 4(2): 211-219



"A comparative study of two profiles derived from feldspar-quartz-schist and hornblende-garnet-gneiss of the Archaean complex near Accra, Gold Coast, has been made. The basic gneiss weathers to give a sandy clay soil characterized mineralogically by quartz-garnet sand and montmorillonitic clay. The acid schist gives a quartzose sandy soil with smaller amounts of caly comprising both kaolin and montmorillonite.".
