Abstract

The AA. present the results of a quantitative study of possible trends on the various fan surfaces with respect to grain-size distributions, clast sphericity, roundness and orientation, and examine the dependence of these parameters on size and lithology of clasts. The purpose of this evaluation was to determine if such information could differentiate and characterize the various fan surfaces and other subenvironments. Of the examined parameters, clast orientation is the best predictor of relative age of fan surfaces
