Abstract

The rate of change in the maximum particle size along the radial profile of all alluvial fan approximately equals the rate of change in the slope of the fan surface. This relationship is found on non-dissected fans; it offers a possibility for reconstructing the surface of alluvial falls in cases where erosion and tectonic movements have obscured the original gradients.
