Abstract

The study attempts to determine the chemical characters of detrital garnets provenance in the Cauvery River Basin. The geochemical results reveal that the detrital garnets are derived from biotite schist, charnockite, and gneisses of intermediate felsic, moderate to strong weathered provenance. The end member composition of the garnets indicates almandine species that are metamorphosed in amphibolite to granulite facies P-T conditions. The angular outline of detrital garnet in the upstream and sub-rounded to rounded grains in the downstream attribute it's transport from the upstream of the Cauvery River.
