"Pillows are described in various stages of production from small parent lava flows. The lavas flowed into water-laden sediments down to depths at which the latter were capable of supporting the weight of lava. Because of their lack of systematic relationship to tectonic axes, certain structures observed in these sediments are interpreted as pushing folds induced by the 'intrusion' of lava flows. The direction of flow of the lavas was towards the north."
