Middle Jurassic

A study was made of a Scalby Ness sedimentation formation from the Middle Jurrasic Period which revealed meander-belt characteristics applicable to other studies of meander formations. Point bar deposits were shown to be a major part of meander belts, but were not necessarily dominant characteristics while rarely preserved counter point bars can be recorded on rock structures and offer additional information on the meander architecture.
