Line APL16

Line APL 16 (strike line) illustrates the superposition of the delta deposited between stage 5e and stage 2 (unit 1) and the delta deposited between stage 7 and stage 6 (unit 2). The older delta shows multiple events of delta lobe switching. Foreset angles for the two deltas imaged are similar (approximately 3). Overlying the older delta, filling accommodation at its margin, are fringing barriers associated with the younger delta (unit 1).
