Quick Reference

A series of sandstone beds, each deposited by the infilling of a river channel, stacked one above the other with little or no intervening mudstone. The multistorey body is formed by the repeated and rapid migration of the channel network over the alluvial plain, so allowing little chance for the preservation of fine floodplain sediment.
