Description :
Size and mineral analysis of the Upper Cretaceous clastics of the Bahariya Oasis indicate moderately well sorted, coarse skeewed and mesokurtic sediments. The shape of quartz grains and occurence of stable and less stable minerals prove a short distance, saltation to graded suspension transportation of these sediments. Probably coastal plain, interfered by fresh water conditions had prevailed during the accumulation of these sediments, i. e. fluviomarine environment.
