Research notes $ Identification of top CGT to a maximum depth of 30 m allows tracing out the shape of a 15–20 km wide Late Quaternary palaeovalley incised by Volturno River into the thick ignimbritic unit immediately after its deposition. A terraced palaeotopography of the valley flanks is Cited by: The exposed Quaternary sections of Ladakh show evidence of seismicity during the late Quaternary. Multiple levels of soft-sediment deformation structures (seismites) are recorded from the Quaternary sediments of the Spituk-Leh, along Indus Suture Zone (ISZ) and the Khalsar palaeolakes, along Shyok Suture Zone (SSZ) and Karakoraum Fault (KF).

Deposition of sand and mud by lateral (bar) migration. Fluctuating flow energy due to seasonal fluctuations. Deformed mud/sandstone (MSd) Mudstone and sandstone with soft sediment deformation, usually consisting of small scale convolute beddings or load casts. Deformation of sand and mud in unconsolidated state due to contrasting sediment by:   Soft-sediment deformation structures (SSDS) are examined in the late Pleistocene marine terrace deposits of the southeastern coast of the Korean Peninsula. The marine terrace deposits are exposed in thicknesses of more than 10 m, and consist of lagoon, foreshore to backshore, coastal dune, and foreshore to backshore deposits in ascending by: 4.

However, it is also undergoing folding, as SUGGATE () has shown for the Buller valley. Thus with fault angle valleys, such as Takaka, and growing folds elsewhere, this region also has similarities (but not in lithologies or uplift rates) to the Wellington section of the East Coast Folded and Faulted by: Late Quaternary fluvial aggradation and incision in the monsoon‐dominated Alaknanda valley, Central Himalaya, Uttrakhand, India.
