Abstract

This article contains results from the analysis of a core of 25 m length, drilled in the distal part of the sandur. The stratigraphy of the core is described in general terms with information on bedding, grain size distributions, etc. The content of diatoms has been analysed, showing that the sediments of the lower part of the core were deposited in a marine environment. The petrographic composition of the core sediments has also been investigated. The sediments are rich in volcanic glass, the origin and transport processes of which are discussed
