By contrast to studies in petroleum geology and, despite their world-wide occurrence, geotechnical studies of ancient fluvial sediments are rare. This paper introduces the main characteristics of these sediments by reference to a classic UK example. Attention is then drawn to a number of major overseas examples where, although the principal features can be recognised, large differences arise as a result of factors such as the tectonic setting, the volume and mineralogy of the source material… Expand
