Quick Reference

A sedimentary structure consisting of a series of upright or overturned folds whose intensity dies out both upwards and downwards within a single bed. The convolutions are formed by the expulsion of water from rapidly deposited sediments by an external shock, e.g. an earthquake, the effect of large waves, or by the rising and falling of the water table through the sediment.
