ABSTRACT A tabulation of recent work on current indicators in modern rivers shows that directional variance increases with decreasing structure scale, in fairly close agreement with the structure hierarchy concept of Allen (1966). Fluvial currents are vectors, definable by direction and magnitude, but most paleocurrent studies ignore magnitude. It is proposed that azimuth readings be weighted according to the cube of current structure thickness, this being a volume measure corresponding to the… CONTINUE READING
