Abstract

The lower Isaac Formation of the Windermere Supergroup at Castle Creek South consists mostly of fine-grained slope strata, with intercalated conglomerate- and sandstone-filled channel complexes, and most likely represents a toe-of-slope depositional environment. The uppermost channel complex at Castle Creek, channel 6 (Figure 1), is comprised of two vertically stacked channels (C1, C2), surrounded by proximal-levee sandstone (S1-S3), and debris-flow deposits (D1, D2). channel 6 illustrates the architectural relationships between slope channels, adjacent sand-rich levees, and debris flows (Figure 2).
