The VHF (metric) subsystem is designated RLM-M (radiolokatsionniy modul --metroviy diapazon), while the L-band (decimetric) S-band (centimetric) subsystems are the RLM-D (radioloaktsionniy modul--decimetroviy diapazon) and RLM-S (radiolokatsionniy modul--santimetroviy diapazon) respectively.
The stratigraphic series of Pico de Navas consists of a succession of thin (decimetric) beds of these various lithologies, typical of Utrillas facies, although dominated by silt-clayey sands.

The SGC sequence in this area is characterized by a monotonous centimetric to decimetric alternation of greywackes and slates with minor presence of sandstones and conglomerates.
On the other hand, the taphofacies G1, G2 and R2 have larger (of decimetric size, see Fig.
The Logrosan granite intruded the Neoproterozoic metasedimentary series of the Schist Greywacke Complex (SGC) which is characterized in this area by a monotonous decimetric to centimetric alternation of greywackes and shales with minor presence of sandstones and conglomerates (Fig.
It consists of sandstones, dark quartzites and black slates alternating on a decimetric to metric scale.
Interpretation: The shales and sandstones are arranged in decimetric Bouma-type sequences, Tc-e and Tb-e.
