Corrélations entre la sédimentation fluviatile et la sédimentation marine littorale en Corse. in Colloque AFEQ, Paris 1983. (Relationship between the fluvial sedimentation and the coastal marine sedimentation in Corsica (Western Mediterranean)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



On the western coast of Corsica, some sections are described, showing fluvial deposits passing laterally to marine sands and pebbles. In other places, fluvial sediments seem to be simultaneous with a marine regression. The coasts with fluvial sedimentation during an interglacial (or interstadial) seem to be uplifted areas. In stable or subsident regions, fluvial sedimentation downvalley would be only during glacial or stadial period, with climatic causes. Both cases, eustatic or climatic, are possible on uplifted coasts.
