Abstract

Penecontemporaneous deformation structures comprise disturbed, distorted, or deformed sedimentary layers produced by inorganic agencies. These features have been formed at the time of or very shortly after deposition of sediment, but in any case, before the consolidation of sediment. Generally, such deformation features are of local character, being primarily confined to a single bed within undeformed beds.
