Summary:Oxygen isotopic ratio determinations on quartz from terra rossa soils lying over and under carbonate rocks indicated that only a small portion of the quartz originated as residuum from the carbonates. Much of the now-weathered terra rossa material may be of aeolian (pyroclastic and Saharan) provenance. [D.J.M.]
