Subsurface and outcrop data are used to describe sand injectites, a group of genetically related features that includes sandstone dykes and sills, but also structures within depositional sand bodies. Fluidization is identified as the process by which sand is injected but we draw attention to the lack of constraints regarding fluidization velocity and fluid viscosity. Injectites are shown to develop between < 10 m and 500 m below the seafloor. No relationship between depth of generation and injection geometry is found. Liquefaction of sand may produce sufficient excess pore fluid to create small sand injections during shallow burial. Large...
