Abstract

The term 'turbidite structures' recently used by Sen (1967) is better avoided, because only a combination of features together with the absence of others can be diagnostic. The distinctions in meaning between the terms 'turbidites' and 'fluviatile deposits' should not be confused. The explanation of convolute lamination by exaggeration of ripple mark is supported by experimental results.
