..., groove casts, and load casts, and convolute bedding. Interstratal crumpling, pull-aparts, and distortion are locally prominent. In general, the sediments and structures resemble those found in turbidite sequences, but graded bedding is lacking. The orientation of fold axes in slumped beds, the areal...

... and Ifisi areas. Individual FA2 units range from 0.5 to 5 m thick, and are typically massive or crudely stratified with weak normal grading. The intraformational clasts are dominantly volcanic siltstone rip-up clasts and pumice, ranging from subangular to rounded pebble- and cobble-size particles...
