The high-quality, laterally continuous coastal exposures of the Moor Cliffs Formation have allowed a highly detailed 2D reconstruction of the floodplain sediments and their contained pedogenic horizons to be made. The thick siltstone packages were actively deposited as finely laminated and rippled sheets, or as intraformational clasts forming larger bedforms. It is proposed that the unusual sediment geometries preserved are intimately related to the timing of land plant colonization of the Old Red Sandstone continent. Channels were extremely broad with low relief and flow over interfluvial areas was common. Evidence for ephemerality and regular desiccation is also closely related...
