Figure 3b. Center of section in Figure 3a after heavy rainstorm, highlighting layering; shovel is at contact between layered mud and underlying massive-appearing mud. Note convoluted layers along horizons above shovel head. Slumping of the layers after they were deposited on the ocean floor disrupted the beds. Later, deposition continued with no slumping, evident by the undisturbed layers up section.
