The reflections from beds below the unconformity surface terminate abruptly at various eroded portions of the profile. The chaotic reflection pattern immediately above the unconformity is possibly due to the disorder of the reflecting surfaces. The reflections being fragmentary and of low amplitude suggest that the strata were deposited in variable settings of relatively high energy. The depressed parts of the unconformity surface could be channels of various depths.
