Some paradoxes in Australasian microtektite compositional trends

Leake, Bernard Elgey 1970. Some paradoxes in Australasian microtektite compositional trends. Journal of Geophysical Research 75 (2) , pp. 349-356. 10.1029/JB075i002p00349

Critical compositional plots chosen to enable a distinction to be made between rocks formed by igneous processes, sedimentary processes, and vapor fractionation processes are presented. Niggli numbers are used in order to circumvent apparent correlations resulting from the swamping influence of major variations in silica. None of these processes seems to explain the Australasian microtektite compositional trends at present.
