Citation: Fan P. 1978. Mineralogy of sediments from Lake Waiau, Hawaii. Pac Sci 32(2): 219-221.
Abstract: Fourteen sediment samples from Lake Waiau, a tropical alpine
lake in Hawaii, were analyzed by X-ray diffraction for their mineral composition.
Plagioclase is the major mineral; others are montmorillonite, goethite,
and quartz. Plagioclase is derived from local tephra; montmorillonite and
goethite are weathering products; and quartz is of eolian origin. A diagenetic
mineral, vivianite, is also present.
