Deposition of gravels and sands took place on mountain-fringing baj adas from sheetfloods and braided streams; sands, silts and clays were deposited in adjacent floodplains. Basin-margin faults, notably the Highland Boundary Fault, controlled subsidence of an elongate depositional basin and when movement on these was sufficiently rapid, coalescing bajadas were constructed. …
