    Terrestrial sedimentary environments I - alluvial fans. Facies Models: When sedimentologists interpret rock units, they do so using a genetic approach based on characteristics of depositional environments, as opposed to simple descriptions of rocks. This viewpoint allows us to predict what types of sediments and stratigraphic sequences would be formed in a given depositional setting. Fluvial sedimentary accumulations range from temporary bars deposited on the insides of meander bends as a result of a loss of transport energy within a local eddy, to deposits tens to hundreds of meters thick formed within major valleys or on coastal plains as a result of the response of rivers to a long-term rise in base level or to the.

Sedimentary processes and facies of the waterlaid Anvil Spring Canyon alluvial fan, Death Valley, California Article in Sedimentology 46(5) - April with 65 Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Autocyclic fluvial processes such as avulsion, as well as changing cycles of high and low flows, resulted in complex interbedding of fluvial and aeolian sands in places such as the Sole Pit Basin.

In the transition zone, playa flooding alternated with aeolian and fluvial processes. The sedimentary facies association suggests gravitational flow processes and sedimentation in alluvial fan settings, from proximal to medial fan positions, together with a slope decrease upsection.

A moderate supply of water is required to establish and maintain the rivers of the distributary system, and if this is not present, waterlain deposits are likely to be restricted to smaller alluvial fans at the basin margin where deposition is by debris flow or sheetflood processes (e.g.

Sedimentologists focused on continental environments (e.g., fluvial, alluvial, eolian, and lacustrine deposits) seek modern analogs to better understand processes that may have been responsible for forming the facies distributions observed in the rocks and for improved prediction of facies connectivity and geometries for applications in natural resource development (e.g Cited by:   Vackiner A.A.

Alluvial fans are important sedimentary environments. They trap sediment delivered from mountain source areas, and exert an important control on the delivery of sediment to downstream environments, to axial drainages and to sedimentary basins.

They preserve a sensitive record of environmental change within the mountain source areas. Two large, adjoining alluvial fans of the Panamint Range piedmont, Death Valley, California, are composed of different facies assemblages deposited by contrasting sedimentary processes.

The Anvil Spring fan was built solely by water‐flow processes (incised‐channel floods and sheetfloods), whereas the neighbouring Warm Spring fan has been constructed principally by debris by:.
