Abstract

Three major depositional systems were differentiated. The lower systems was characterized by relatively small fluvial systems. The following thick sandstone beds represent large fluvial channel complexes formed by a large sandy braided river, a thin-bedded succession represents an abandonment of this system and a migration of the paleo-Indus towards the east to its present position. Finally, a system is formed by terminal fluvial fans, of which its modern analogue can be found within the intramontane basins. (AIS).
