Superficial distributonn of sediment size in two alluvial fans triggered by a rainstorm (Najerilla High Valley). In this paper the spatial distribution of the sediments is studied in the alluvial fans of Pirare and Banadero (Najerilla High Valley, Iberial System, Spain), according to the characteristics of gravels measured in 18 points. The results show that the superficial organization of theA-axis and of the mean size of the gravels has no relation with the distance from the apex and with the slope. Their evolution is a function of depositinnal processes that buildt such alluvia fans.
