S.79: qsIg Igliste-Schotter In den an die Moränenwälle des Emmet-Vorstosses angrenzenden Molassetälchen entstanden während der Eispräsenz randglaziale Staubecken, in welche phasenweise fluviatile Sedimente abgelagert wurden. Dies scheint kurz vor der Entstehung des Gündelmoos-Lehms stattgefunden zu haben, denn letzterer ist in leichten Depressionen im randglazialen Schotter vorhanden. Es handelt sich um relativ feinkörnigen, lockeren Schotter
