Über die Natur und Bildungsweise del marinen Eisensilikate, insbesondere der chemsitischen Substanzen: ein Beitrag zur chedstschen und mechanischen Sedimention

    Abstract

    DURING recent years considerable progress has been made in the description of ferriferous sediments. Works by Hayes on the Wabana iron ore (1915), by Cayeux on the French secondary ores (1922), and by Slavik on the Czechoslovakian deposits have contributed substantially to the elucidation of the chamosite-bearing rocks, while corresponding researches have been carried out on the English iron ores by the Geological Survey of Great Britain since 1920 (see “Summary of Progress for 1922”(1923), and Special Reports, vol. 29 (1925)). The present work contains a review of this question on similar lines to the above, dealing in some detail with the German deposits. The author limits himself to the discussion of existing literature on the subject, with a few additional descriptions, and provides a useful account of many rather inaccessible papers on local ores. In dealing with general literature the author has evidently been somewhat at a disadvantage, for of the works above mentioned not one appears in the bibliography, though there is passing reference in the text to the report by Hayes.
