Abstract

Using SEM-supported microsurface and analytical methods we studied quartz and rare feldspar grains of the sand fraction > 250 mu m from three soil profiles in Jordan. The soils including a Lithosol are of different maturity and diagenetic alteration of their bed rocks, which are sandstone, limestone, and basalt. The profiles had been investigated during projects on the environmental history of the region, whereas the quartz grain surface analysis (QGSA) that has been applied for the first time to Jordan soils is an essential part of a supplementary study that was initiated when findings of unusual mineral components in a red basalt soil raised questions of their source and the history of this soil.
