Unravelling the patterns of alluvial fan development using mineral magnetic analysis : examples from the Sparta Basin, Lakonia, southern Greece

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Mineral magnetic analysis of B-horizons of soils developing upon the surfaces of alluvial fans was undertaken in order to : differentiate and rank discrete fan surfaces by order of formation; establish whether fan surfaces formed simultaneously in adjacent fan systems, and deduce probable patterns of fan development. Changes in climate are deemed to be the major control of fanhead incision, fan trenching and fan surface formation. However, the likely effects of long-term tectonic activity and approximately 5 000 years of human occupation upon fan development in the Sparta Basin remain unclear
