Abstract

There are many examples of ancient sand bodies which have been interpreted as having a tidal origin. Most of them, however, are intertidal to very shallow subtidal, and represent lagoonal sand flats, tidal channel or estuarine channel and sand flat environments. There are remarkably few well described examples of ancient shelf/shallow marine subtidal sand bodies -- the few examples that exist will be the topic of these notes.
