Multidirectional Palaeocurrents as Indicators of Shelf Storm Beds

Abstract

Distal parts of shelf storm sequences, below the zone of hummocky cross stratification, may differ little from turbidites. Multidirectional paleocurrent indicators are described from the Lower Silurian Hughley Shales of the Welsh Borders of England, and they are proposed as an important criterion for the recognition of storm induced bottom currents.
