Abstract

Normally graded parallel laminae, ranging in thickness from less than 1 mm to several centimeters, are the most common small-scale sedimentary structure. These thin beds grade from either sand or silt to very fine clay; concentrations of foraminifers at the top of the fine clays are common. Microcross-stratification, thin distorted layers, and microfracturing are rather common; reworked plant material, mica, and volcanic shards are abundant. -from Authors
