––The Aeronian clastic sediments in the Gorny Altai area bear signatures of past seismic effects (paleo-seismites). Sedimentary structures produced by brittle deformation (breccias) span the level of the upper convolutus graptolite zone and the lower sedgwicki zone. They coexist with soft-sediment deformation structures (SSDS), such as turbated and rolled layers, bumpy layer boundaries, etc. At the final deposition stage, the rocks were deformed during seismically-triggered landsliding and were shed into a submarine canyon, with formation of rolls (pseudo-conglomerate).
