Abstract

After the characterisation of the coarse sand accumulations in both mountains, their sedimentological properties are analysed and the aeolian and water activity in the two mountain ranges is compared. From this study it is evident that aeolian processes are also important in the Serra da Estrela granite plateaus. The coarse sand accumulations found in the Serra da Estrela are very similar to the ones from in the Serra do Gerês. This fact points towards a similarity in the processes occurring in the 2 study areas
