Such processes play an essential and conspicuous role in the denudation of land surfaces and the transport of rock detritus from higher to lower levels. Over much of the world the erosion of   1. Introduction. Fluvial sandstone reservoirs are one of the most important hydrocarbon exploration targets in continental basins (e.g., Bohacs, ).However, the prediction of high-quality and large-volume reservoir facies distribution can be problematic as fluvial deposits are generally influenced by many complex allogenic controls, such as accommodation, topography, and climate (Shanley The book summarizes methods of mapping and interpretation of fluvial depositional systems, with a detailed treatment of the tectonic, climatic and eustatic controls on fluvial depositional :// Recent work suggests that soils developed on much of the modern landscape have limited preservation potential, as a significant part of the terrestrial environment is undergoing long-term degradation (Hartley et al. ; Weissmann et al. , ).Only in areas of active sediment accumulation, commonly restricted to subsiding sedimentary basins, will soils and their associated sediments

Rivers – Physical, Fluvial and Environmental Processes They showed that distributive fluvial systems (DFSs), commonly called megafans, fluvial fans, and alluvial fans in the literature, dominate the fluvial depositional patterns in active continental sedimentary basins, with a much smaller proportion of the fluvial area in these basins covered by rivers that are generally confined, for example: (1   Plains Indian, member of any of the Native American peoples inhabiting the Great Plains of the United States and Canada. This culture area comprises a vast grassland between the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains and from present-day provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan in Canada through the present-day state of Texas in the United States. The area is drained principally by the Ephemeral fluvial systems drained off the London-Brabant and Rhenish Massifs and flowed northwards towards the Silverpit Formation desert lake, whilst marginal dune fields expanded and contracted
