The Quaternary deposits are described in eight major groupings: glacial, periglacial, aeolian, fluviatile, western Tasmania book, estuarine, marine, and karst. These groupings are based on the main range of environments that existed at different places and different times in England during the Quaternary, some of which continue during the present Size: 1MB.

The Pieman River is a major perennial river located in the west coast region of Tasmania, Australia. Formed by the confluence of the Mackintosh River and Murchison River, the Pieman River rises in what is now known as Lake Rosebury, an artificial lake formed by the Bastyan Dam.

The river flows generally west and northwest and then west again Country: Australia. Quaternary deposits, mapped earlier by Pearthree and Youberg (), were the target of mapping in specific areas that were considered to be incompletely understood. In addition, all of the Quaternary deposits were evaluated and in part reinterpreted based on.

Quaternary sedimentary successions are described from the Linda Valley, a small valley in western Tasmania that was dammed by ice during Early and Middle Pleistocene glaciations.

Mapping and logging of exposures suggest that an orderly sequence of deposits formed during ice incursion, occupation and withdrawal from tributary valleys. The Boco Plain, at the northern end of the Boco River valley, is a broad, flat-floored depression extending northwards from the Pieman River valley in the northern part of the West Coast Range of Tasmania (Fig.

Holocene deposits are not faulted or tilted significantly, although basins to the west, such as Death Valley, were tectonically active during the Quaternary.

Subsidence of the western basins strongly influenced late Quaternary rates of deposition and erosion in the Tecopa basin. 1 INTRODUCTION SCOPE OF THE INVESTIGATIONCited by: Jennings, C.W.,An explanatory text to accompany thescale fault and geologic maps of California: California Division of Mines and Geology, Bulletinp.
