In the first edition of these notes (Harms et al., 1975), it seemed timely to review conglomeratic depositional systems, and the ways in which the sedimentary structures in conglomerate could be used to reconstruct transport processes and depositional environments. Since 1975, conglomerates of various environments have received more attention. We will limit our present discussion to fluvial systems, to that this chapter logically follows the previous one, yet still illustrates how environments can be reconstructed from primary structures and stratification sequences.
