- Thick sheet sandstone units containing upright trees represent the product of single large-scale flood events that deposited coarse-grained sediment across the proximal interchannel region, locally burying vegetation.
- Generally coarse-grained soils compact more readily than fine grained ones and hence the finer the particles the less maximum thickness of layer to be compacted.
- The lower part of the section consists of cross-bedded, fine to medium sandstone, with scattered coarse-to very coarse-grained particles.
