Dewatering Structure
Dewatering Structure
The vertical finger of finer-grained material in the conglomerate was probably formed when the conglomerate was being deposited on top of wet sediment. As the weight of the conglomerate increased, compression of the underlying sediment led to the water being expelled suddenly upwards, creating a crevice which was then filled in by the remains of the underlying sediment.
