Directional Features in Braided-meandering-stream Deposits, Cimarron River, North-central Oklahoma

John W. Shelton, H. Richard Burman, Raymond L. Noble


Directional features in sand of the Cimarron River correspond rather well to the river and sand trend. Grain orientation and parting lineation in horizontal beds are the most accurate current indicators. The greater variation in direction shown by small-scale and medium-scale crossbedding reflects local orientations of the depositing currents.
