Late quaternary sediment sources, storage and transfers within mountain basins using clast lithological analysis : Pineta Basin, central Pyrenees, Spain

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper describes an attempt to trace sediment transfer modes and pathways using clast lithological analysis in a small mountain basin strongly influenced by glaciation : the Pineta Basin. The paper interprets slope-channel interaction by encompassing the whole basin, enabling staged sedimentary pathways to be revealed. Additionally, bed-material textures of the modern rivers and youngest La Sarra Terrace were investigated to provide further information on the geomorphic coupling of the system. Significant impacts are made by conduits, they deliver local lithologies to the main river
