SYNOPSISEarly Devonian fluvial sedimentation took place in a large, late-orogenic basin bounded by actively-subsiding high-angled faults. 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. …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
