    Geology: The deposits consist of alluvial sediments of present streams and include gravels, sands, silts, clays, and mixtures of any and all of these. The partition of this unit from other Holocene alluvial deposits was based more on geomorphic considerations than on lithology or age. Fossils are rare and modern. Geologic History, Stratigraphy and Tectonics. The K'yŏnggi Massif and Yongnam Massif lie north and south of the Okch'on-T'aebaeksan Zone respectively. They are both polymetamorphic gneiss and schist complexes from the Precambrian and underlie the entire Republic of Korea. Units range in age from the Archean to the Proterozoic, with metamorphic facies from greenschist to amphibolite grade.

    In this work, the reader will find the basic concepts and vocabulary of sedimentary geology, along with a presentation of the new ideas that are in current use in petroleum exploration. This abundantly illustrated book will serve as an excellent educational tool and remain a valuable resource and handy reference work in any petroleum geology ts: /5(2). The Geology of Fluvial Deposits: Sedimentary Facies, Basin Analysis, and Petroleum Geology by A. D. Miall, published by Springer-Verlag, ISBN , pages, , $ Review by Christopher G. Kendall Andrew Miall is a productive writer and this book is .

    Alluvial Fans are the primary source of recharge to the aquifer underlying the Mississippi-Yazoo Alluvial Plain ("Mississippi Delta"). The fans, which form a discontinuous chain at the foot of a low bluffline, from DeSoto County near Memphis to Wilkinson County near the Louisiana state line, are of great significance in allowing recharge into the Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer (MRVA. Book Descriptions: Fluvial deposits represent the preserved record of one of the major nonmarine environ­ ments. They accumulate in large and small intermontane valleys, in the broad valleys of trunk rivers, in the wedges of alluvial fans flanking areas of uplift, in the outwash plains fronting melting glaciers, and in coastal plains.
