The LVA has a block structure with moderate drainage and Leucocratic granite-gneiss
as the parent material.
Geology Type granite-gneiss
and retrograde granulite gneiss with minor amounts of granite and granodiorite.
The L-D curves of the granite-gneiss
rock samples showed regular elongated trend-lines with smooth trails and slight path deviations changing between 155kN-0.
The soils are formed from charnokite and granite-gneiss rocks.
80 m, underlain by hard partially weathered granite-gneiss.
The formation of Ultisols on granite-gneiss under humid tropical weathering conditions appears to be a common occurrence in Indian subcontinent as evidenced in the present study and elsewhere (Bhattacharyya et al.
Large-scale advection of granitic melts into the upper crust is thought to have contributed to the crustal-scale amplitude (10-15 km) of composite granite-gneiss
domes, many of which are cored by young granites (Bleeker, 2002).
It is a large central-type intrusion emplaced in pre-existing biotite-plagioclase gneiss and granite-gneiss
about 380 million years ago.
The interior and coastal lowlands of southern Baffin Island comprise the Foxe Lowland physiographic province, which is bisected by a major contact between Ordovician sedimentary rocks and Precambrian granite-gneiss, overlain with extensive glacial, glaciofluvial, and marine sediments (Blake, 1966; Blackadar, 1967).
The inlet is fed by a relatively small (10 km2) drainage basin where dwarf birch was found and which seemed to be representative of low arctic terrain in the granite-gneiss bedrock area.
2) Low shrub heath in areas of granite-gneiss bedrock, with Salix arctica, Cassiope tetragona, Betula glandulosa, Vaccinium vitis-ideae, Ledum palustre, and other heath plants, and numerous herbs, grasses, and mosses;
A number of important shears have been recognised along meta-sedimentary / granite-gneiss
contacts, as well as inflections on major shears which may be important in localising mineralization.
