The cross section begins at the top of the Nuomuhong alluvial fan
in the south and extends to the Amunike Mountain piedmont in the north.
Within the walls of Acopios 1 and Acopios 2 a high angle (subvertical), south-dipping fault zone affecting alluvial fan
deposits can be seen (Figs.
Low scores for this factor were also found on alluvial fans
that have drainages confined to the metamorphic portions of the Sierra Foothills such as the Calaveras River fan, which tend to have fine textured sediments compared to fans sourced in granitic terrain in the high Sierra Nevada.
The Santa Lucia Highlands AVA has a great reputation for Pinot Noir, and growers there continue to fine tune clones, rootstocks and trellis systems to improve wine quality and a sense of the unique terroir on alluvial fans
and escarpments located on the west side of the Salinas Valley.
If we look more broadly in Gale Crater, we can see that there is a prominent feature that geologists call an alluvial fan
Three alluvial fans
within the plain; namely: the Zarub fan in the north, the Moundassah fan in the middle and the Ajran fan in the south (Al-Shamsei, 1993).
Accumulation processes have a lower manifestation, especially, in creeks confluence area with the Valsan river mouth and its tributaries valleys as alluvial fan
. Slope processes are the following: gullying, torrentiality and run-off.
The alluvial sediments and the alluvial fans
rainfall water enters the aquifer have a considerable spread.
indicate the existence of complex processes of change in the landscape of the Pantanal, resulting from the sedimentary dynamic in alluvial fans
. In these fan regions the landscape changes continuously because of sedimentation and by avulsion processes.
