Scour structure (labeled) in conglomerate and limestone unit
A scour-shaped bedform (light dashed line) dominates
this view of
the conglomerate and limestone unit (between the heavy dashed lines).
The scour was filled by lithoclastic limestone and then clayey shell hash
limestone. Lithoclasts in the limestone include fragments of the
limestone and claystone in surrounding beds (see close-up). The
conglomerate and limestone rests directly on the varicolored claystone
at this site. The Mulberry Member was eroded away prior to deposition
of the conglomerate and limestone unit.
