Original structures of distinctive character are developed during deposition of flood deposits along the Colorado River in Grand Canyon. A description of the types of bedding and cross-lamination in these deposits is given and a comparison is made between them and the original structures formed in certain other environments including the Colorado River delta and typical sea beaches. Two forms of contemporaneous deformation developed in Colorado River flood deposits are described and discussed.
