Abstract

The article introduces an analysis of the morphology, aerial extent and features of the sedimentary environment of ice-marginal streamway terraces in the northern part of the Toruń Basin near Bydgoszcz, which evolved as a result of water flow in a sand-bedded braider river, with a dominating bar-derived type of sedimentation, and also attempts to analyze the situation of the channel terraces (below terrace IX) in relation to structures of the Mesozoic substratum. On the basis of structurally-textural research of the deposits forming the terraces near Bydgoszcz and those near the Vistula River gap of Fordon, reference was made to the problem of the genesis of this river gap. The results of the research suggest that the bifurcation phase of the Vistula River was shorter than has been assumed. - (BJ)
