Massive sandstone facies in the Hawkesbury Sandstone, a Triassic fluvial deposit near Sydney, Australia.

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The abundance of massive sandstone in the Hawkesbury Sandstone is attributed to deposition in a large river, in which flood stage bedforms were probably up to 15m high. Because of the size of the bedforms, large volumes of liquefied sand were generated when foreset slopes failed.-from Authors
