Figure 2. Dip sections across the northeast margin of the Central Basin of each of the two transgressive-regressive cycles, a: the Firkanten Formation, and b: the Grumant-Basilika Formations. The sections show the depositional architecture and stacking pattern of small-scale sequences within the intermediate-scale cycles. The small-scale sequences are numbered upward and the position of the numbers indicates the backstepping - forward-stepping stacking pattern. Note the different scales used in a and b.
