The published paleocurrent
data indicate the supply of sediments took placefrom theAravali Ranges, India.
The sedimentological work was completed with the collection of paleocurrent
data and the analysis of vertical variability of grain-clast sizes.
This is consistent with paleocurrent
data that suggest a northwestward (present-day coordinates) flow direction, with the source region to the SE and a deep basin to the NW (Schenk 1970; Waldron et al.
Two dominant paleocurrent
directions, one to the north another to the south, is determined.
It is noteworthy to say that orientation of Nummulites is an indication of paleocurrent
In order to better understand the process of incrustation, mineralogical enrichment, and paleocurrent
flow, magnetic susceptibility signature is used.
The measurement were analyzed using variable constraints system by calculating the Mean Vector Azimuths (MVA) and variables of the cross bedded units of the Ajali Sandstone (Steinmetz,1962) in order to determine the paleocurrent
of the Ajali Sandstone as well the trend of the paleocurrent
by constructing rose diagram.
Nautiloids and current ripples as paleocurrent
indicators in Upper Ordovician limestones, Anticosti Island, Canada.
Petrofabric, the study of the preferred alignment of minerals and rocks, is used as a proxy measurement for paleocurrent
directions in sedimentary rocks, emplacement flow directions in igneous rocks, and strain directions in deformed and metamorphosed rocks.
The evidence typically cited in support of a braided stream model includes prevalence of massive or planar-bedded conglomerate and cross-bedded sandstone, low paleocurrent
dispersion, and lack of characteristic vertical sequences such as point-bar sequences seen in meandering streams.
