Appositional Fabric Study of the Coastal Sedimentaries, East Godavari District, Andhra, India

A. Sriramadas


The sedimentaries of the coastal region of the East Godavari district are studied by appositional fabric analysis to derive the direction and nature of the agent of deposition. Considerable part of the work is devoted to develop techniques of processing the sandstones for dimensional analysis. A circular scale is devised for measuring the flow directions of the grain outlines. The results indicate that the agent of deposition is a wave and that the sediments were transported towards north on the east coast of India during the Upper Jurassic as is the case today.
