Abstract

Coastal soil samples contain the most economically important mineral accumulations. Coastal soil structure is defined as the shape, size and spatial arrangement of individual soil particles, cluster of particles and combination of different types of pores with solid particles. Morphology, micro morphology and elemental mapping analysis were carried out to determine the ultra structure and composition of elements present in coastal soil samples by Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Atomic Force Microscope (AFM), EDAX with elemental mapping and Light Microscopic techniques. SEM analysis showed the coastal soil samples have different morphological structures like spherical (Al-Si-O), tubular (Si-O), triangular (Fe-Al-Si-O), platy (Ca-Si-O), nearly spherical (Fe-Ti-O) and irregular (Ca-Al-Si-O) shapes. Elemental analysis (EDAX) confirmed the presence of silicon in large quantities than the other oxides such as Al, Ca, Fe and Ti. Elemental mapping showed the enriched elements clearly. AFM studies confirmed the ultra structure of soil samples. Light Microscopic studies confirmed the micro morphological studies of soil samples of west coast of Kanyakumari District.

Key Words
