La naissance des terrasses würmiennes en amont de Sisteron. in Colloque AFEQ, Paris 1983. (The upper part of the Würmian fluvioglacial terraces of the Durance river near Sisteron (Hautes-Alpes, Alpes de Haute-Provence, France))

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



An occurate analysis of the würmian fluvioglacial drift of the river Durance shows the combination of alluviations during the glacial progression and during the first part of the glacial recession. However, as well as in the Rhône valley near Lyon, the most part of the fluvioglacial deposits (thickness 35-40 m) was made during the stability and progression stages. The retreat stage has only made little retouches along twenty km dowstream from the last terminal moraines.
