Introduction

 

This bibliography aims to give an overview of English, French and German language literature available on the subject ‘Tektites in the Australasian strewn field’.

 

The bibliography is usable for tektite specialists like geologists, geophysicists and enthusiasts like collectors and dealers.

No concern has been given to the readability or understandability of the referenced literature.

 

The search was done by starting with the keyword ‘Tektite’ only. And then narrow the search by connecting it to the keyword expression ‘Australasian strewn field’.

 

The references have been searched in 97 databases of which 8 gave usable hits and one library (See appendix 1.) No secondary references have been included.

 

The references are classified into 6 major subjects, General topics, Creation theories, Formation theories, Chemical composition, Trace elements and Age, decided mainly from the title or the abstract when needed.

 

General topics: Gives a brief overview of general conditions and discussions about the Australasian Strewn field.

Creation theories: Papers that mainly discuss the different creation theories for tektites.

Formation theories: Papers that discuss how the four different Australasian tektite types are formed, Splashforms, Moung Nong, Australites and Microtektites.

Chemical composition: Papers that discuss the major chemical elements of tektites, composition and variations.

Trace elements: Papers that discuss low concentration chemical elements like Beryllium, Uranium etc.

Age: Papers that mainly discuss the age of the Australasian strewn field using different dating techniques.

 

Especially for the General topics, the list is not comprehensive. Papers related to other strewn fields may be of equal general importance. Other bibliographies should be accessed for this purpose. Tektite books gives good general bibliographies: See:

http://www.meteorite-times.com/Back_Links/2003/January/Tektite_of_Month.htm

 

The references are listed according to the Numeric System. Where the references from the source differs from the template of the numeric system, the source standard is preserved.

For example the names  B. P. Glass. and Virgil E. Barnes’ are preserved but should have been changed to: ‘GLASS, B. P. and BARNES, V. E.’ if the numeric template was followed strictly. Similarly ‘Page(s)’ is not changed to ‘pp.’ etc. and the title alone is always in Italic, irrespective of the document type.

To follow the numeric template strictly would make it difficult or impossible exactly to trace the reference in the electronic source.
