The objective of this study is to assess the effectiveness of GPR using continuous reflection sounding in a homogeneous fluvial deposit consisting largely of medium sands to medium gravels.
mud and mica drapes, tidal bundles, reactivation surfaces) allow their interpretation as fluvial deposits.
Basal sediments (FA1) are interpreted as high energy, braided fluvial deposits, characterized by coarse-grained (conglomerate--sandstone) facies; which grade upwards to tide-influenced, estuarine sedimentation (sandstones and mudstones with inclined heterolithic stratification, FA2), and then to high-energy, coastal sheet and channelled sandstones with different tidal features (FA3); and finally, to fine-grained (mudstones and minor burrowed sandstones) of an offshore marine associations (FA4).
Jannah Dam project in Lebanon, which involves the excavation of 60m of fluvial deposits and above ground construction of 105m.
Soils consist mainly of marine and fluvial deposits that are readily erodible and with poor drainage capability.
In terms of style, these deposits likely represent a transition from the arid, strongly seasonal fluvial deposits of the Mabou Group to the perennial braided fluvial deposits of the lower Boss Point Formation (Allen et al.
In 1903, Stanton reported six new species of freshwater mollusks from fluvial deposits of the Kootenai Formation that were "certainly not older than the Lower Cretaceous" (1).
The ages of the fluvial deposits are between 19000 [+ or -] 1570 and 15200 [+ or -] 2300ka, suggesting that the construction of the megafans started at least during the last glacial maximum (LGM), followed by cutting, paleomeander and terrace formation during the early and late Holocene (10990 [+ or -] 2850 to 3850 [+ or -] 840ka).
