The base of the system is an angular unconformity; the top is a gradual facies change to a mudstone-dominated unit. Maximum thickness is 305 m (1000 ft) and preserved width and length are 8 km (4.9 mi) and 9 km (5.6 mi), respectively. Mean paleoflow is to the northwest, parallel to the main axis of the basin.
