- Now the rubble looked like any other industrial detritus, though the surrounding buildings definitely looked like victims of a bombing.
- Goats, oxen and others wandered listlessly amongst the scattered waste and detritus.
- Perhaps those pupils who carried out the survey should have spent more time on the reasons why there is so much litter and detritus in the area and how it got there, rather than merely observing where was clean and tidy and where was not.
- The growth of these trees is a metaphor for life emerging from the discarded waste, the detritus, the dumpsters of the city.
- The debris and detritus from the sites that were destroyed have been either tainted or sterilized.
- We filled 13 large black bin bags with the varied detritus of irresponsible litter-bugs.
- There are some glorious examples in the east of trendy, stylish, and well upholstered bars, cafes, shops selling pop cultural detritus and the like in old decaying buildings in the east.

- The clean up of rubbish and river detritus took place between 12 pm and 2.30 pm.
- These tectonothermal events occurred in the source region before accumulation of the siliciclastic detritus.
- Therefore none of the mafic sheets supplied detritus to the sedimentary environment.
- This transition coincides with an upsection increase in megaturbidite beds and increasing abundance of trace amounts of mafic igneous detritus.
- When the rivers are a turmoil of silt and detritus flushed down the system, light levels are low enough for the zander to feel at home on even quite bright days.
- The fact that these rocks were not supplying detritus to the sedimentary basin is consistent with the geological observation that they always appear covered by the younger deposits, with little or no discontinuity until the Devonian.
- Alluvial basins act as direct sources for turbidite basins when contemporaneous shallow marine shelves are by-passed and detritus is fed along submarine canyons that erode back into alluvial basins or coastal plains.
- The reappearance of feldspar in the detritus probably indicates erosion of a less mature source area.
- The majority of the Manx Group comprises mature cratonic detritus typical of a passive margin.
- Hutchison & Oliver contended that this metamorphic detritus was derived from the Grampian Terrane based upon geochemical characterization of associated Barrovian zone garnets.
- In Hertfordshire and East Anglia, gravels that are in a similar setting to the Hanborough Terrace contain up to 50% Mesozoic detritus at some localities.
- They will be referred to as the high-MgO group, and apparently comprise a large amount of detritus from mafic sources.
- Chang proposed that a triple junction developed in the Songpan-Ganzi Terrane during the Permian and detritus from the Dabie-Sulu belt and adjacent areas filled the new oceanic basin.
- It is thus unlikely that the bulk of the Carboniferous detritus could have been derived by recycling of preexisting Silurian sandstones.
- The zircon data clearly lead to the conclusion that a Proterozoic terrane is the main detritus source because of the preponderance of grains from this age.
- This range of shapes is consistent with the sediment being a mixture of approximately equal amounts of detritus from distal and proximal sources.
- Indeed, Garzanti & Van Haver also observed that most of post-Eocene sediments were made of detritus from granitoid rocks.
- This may reflect drowning of the source of carbonate and terrigenous clastic detritus, and/or retreat of a sediment dispersal system.
- The supply of detritus from a continental interior with little incorporation of volcanic material into the basin suggests that Eastern Avalonia remained attached to Gondwana throughout deposition of the Manx Group.
- Eluvium is the geological term for detritus from weathering rock (soil, dust and rock particles are broken down and redeposited by the wind).
