Abstract

Gravel sheets in the South of Börzsöny Mountains were studied in this paper. The pebbles have survived in good condition. Although there are considerable horizontal distance and difference in altitudes between the south-western and south-eastern gravel sheet locations of the mountains, the geomorphological and grain-size analyses have resulted in some important conclusions. The geomorphology of the two areas is very similar to each other. The correlational statistical analysis of grain size shows similarity between the samples collected from the occurrences. In the environment of both locations some boulders are found composed of quartzite. In the opinion of the author these boulders were very probably transported by floating frozen ice floes. - (AM)
