Description :
The distributions of sediment properties including grain size, specific gravity and Cu and Fe concentrations for these phases are presented through a succession of three distinct periods or phases over a five years period: meandering channel phase, apron phase and rechannelized phase. Copper-rich, coarse grained deposits were found along channel axes and down the apron flanks. The average thickness of and fraction of the sediment column occupied by turbidities was found to increase with distance down channel, indicating a down channel decrease in the importance of continuous flow to the channel building process.
