dc.description.abstract To understand the origin of the mineralogy of the sediments in the Ala Wai Canal, 20 soil and stream sediment samples were collected from Manoa, Palolo, and Makiki Valleys. X-ray diffraction analysis was used to determine mineralogical composition. Four mineral assemblages are recognized: plagioclase from mechanical weathering present in Makiki Valley and pyroxene, olivine, plagioclase, and ilmenite in Manoa and Palolo Valleys; (2) maghemite, hematite, and kaolinite present in all three valleys from chemical weathering and gibbsite and goethite in Manoa Valley and goethite in Palolo Valley; (3) quartz in all three valleys from aeolian deposition; and (4) pyrite, calcite, and aragonite in the Ala Wai Canal, and kaolinite and gibbsite derived from the watershed studied. en_US
