Abstract

An attempt was made to interpret the mode of transport and the depositional environment of sandstones of the Val Gardena Formation in the area between Cerkno and Smrečje by analysis of frequency distribution of lengths of long axes of sections of quartz grains. The examined sandy fraction should have been transported by fluvial currents principally in the saltation and partly the suspension population, and in a smaller degree in the rolling population of grains.
