Question: d the stratigraphic sequence in column b is similar to...

Question details
D. The stratigraphic sequence in column B is similar to that in column A. Note that similar interlayering of coarse- and fine grained clastic rocks, and the presence of similar sedimentary structures. What features of these lithologies can be used to support an interpretation for a tidal depositional environment?

l lornmed during a continent-continent collision. The mountains in B a dominated by sedimentary and metasedimentary rocks. The area in C is a stable craton where there is lit or no active tectonism and, therefore, an area of low relief. Rocks exposed in this example are very old gr ites and granitic gneisses. t- What types of sands would you expect to be produced from these source areas-quartz sands, feld sands, or lithic sands? In the case of lithic sands, what types of rock fragments would be common?
