Summary[edit]

Part of a former very large dune composed of smaller migrating dunes. The three large wedges are bounded by 2nd order bounding surfaces. The surfaces represent a period of time when the underlying dune was eroded, prior to deposition of the next dune. Within each wedge fainter laminations, 3rd order bounding surfaces (best seen in the middle wedge), converge downwards. These 3rd order bounding surfaces dip at angles in excess of 35° and flatten out as they curve towards the base of the unit.
