DETERMINAÇÃO DE PALEOCORRENTES EM CASCALHEIRAS DA FORMAÇÃO RIO CLARO (NEOCENOZÓICO)

NESTOR A. M. PEREIRA, PAULO M. B. LANDIM

Resumo


This study deals with the Rio Claro Formation (Neocenozoic) paleocurrent determination based on pebble main axis orientation. It was found that the particles, ellipsoidal in shape, lie with their long axis roughly parallel to flow direction and inclined downwards, The orientation data showed a southward trend for the paleocurrents, which is coincident with the present Corumbataí River drainage.
