... Abstract The deposits of the Potwar Plateau in northern Pakistan show large-scale changes in fluvial deposition during the period between 14 and 6 my BP in three superimposed formations (Chinji, Nagri, Dhok Pathan) approximately 2700 m in total thickness. Five cross sections spaced throughout...

... in the detailed work of Willis (1993 a ), Khan et al. (1997) and Zaleha (1997 a , b ). Another study carried out in younger Siwalik sediments (Dhok Pathan Formation, see Fig. 2) by Behrensmeyer & Tauxe (1982) distinguishes two different sandstone body types and compositions. But the relatively narrow...
