Abstract

The alluvial deposits of the Mortroux-Kosberg terrace and the local levels of Noorbeek and Crapoel show similar sedimentographic characteristics suggesting that they belong to a same geomorphological unit. Fine analyses of heavy minerals have allowed, besides the discovery of hypersthene and a recent eruption of the Ormont volcano, to individualize the terrases included in the Formations III and IV through the well-known Eifel eruptions with enstatite-augite-oxyhornblende and with augite-oxyhornblende
