SOME OBSERVATIONS ON THE SILICA/SESQUIOXIDES RATIOS OF TWO GROUPS OF EGYPTIAN SOILS (LATE PAPER). GEOMECHANICS IN TROPICAL SOILS. PROCEEDINGS OF THE SECOND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON GEOMECHANICS IN TROPICAL SOILS, SINGAPORE, 12-14 DECEMBER 1988. VOLUME 2

Chemical analysis was used to differentiate between two main groups of soil deposits in Egypt. The first one is occurring in the Nile Valley and Delta and the other is formed on the relatively high desert deposits surrounding the river plain. The results indicated that it is possible to deferentiate samples from one to another type of soil by means of the sesquioxides ratio and that the Nile Valley and Delta deposits may be considered as weathered lateritic soils.(A) For the covering abstract see IRRD 820605.
