The lithologic unit classes were considered to be categorical variables, whereas slope, elevation and solar radiation were considered to be continuous variables.
The track-bearing lithologic unit represents a period of high-frequency depositional cyclicity on a very shallow and partly restricted inner shelf.
Below the lower unit and close to the contact with the G oldenville Group, a single outcrop of finer grained, massive, black slate suggests that a third lithologic unit may be present.
Samples were taken from each lithologic unit of the Byram formation and the genera present were identified and counted.
The Bagh complex is an assemblage of igneous and sedimentary rocks contains various types of lithologic units. Each lithologic unit is bounded by a layered parallel thrust.
This is accomplished by overlaying the field observations (lithologic unit, strike and dip measurements) on enhanced image layers in a GIS environment to assist in geologically calibrating the image interpretation of units or structures.
Lithologic units of KIA are further subdivided in to northern, central and southern terrane.
Reflectance spectra of minerals and rocks in the visible to short-wave infrared wavelength (0.5-2.5 [micro]m) region of the EM spectrum are characterized by absorption features, caused primarily by electronic transitions and vibrational transitions [21].These diagnostic spectral features can provide a way to detect or identify minerals to distinguish lithologic units and to determine wall rock alteration products [22] by using remote sensing.
Brenner (1976) described several species of the genera Fabanella, Macrodentina, Pontocyprella, Schuleridea, Cythereis, Paracypris, Asciocythere, Haplocytheridea, Eocytheropteron, Paranotacythere, Cytherella, Metacytheropteron, Dolocytheridea, Clithrocytheridea (all brackish-marine), Darwinula, Theriosynoecum and Cypridea (all predominantly freshwater) from the Barremian and Aptian of the larger area around Morella (from several localities), but did not give any sections or lithostratigraphic schemes enabling us to identify his sample points und thus help with chronostratigraphic correlation of the actual lithologic units (Fig.
