Cliff section showing coarsening upwards in the sandstones of Unit M26. Note the large-scale inclined bedding within the lower sandstone unit: this dips more steeply than the regional dip, shown by the boundary between the lower buff sandstone and the upper yellow sandstone. The inclined beds in the buff sandstone may represent the migration of a small delta into deeper water.

  • Which way was the delta migrating?
