Figure 3A. Type 2 complexly folded tight and recumbent folds with basal slide plane, Jam Roll Bay, Mount Messenger Formation. Outcrop is approximately 80 m wide at beach level. Slump interval is c. 10 m thick, and is unconformably overlain by Quaternary deposits (brown).

 Figure 3B. Type 2 MTC with large sandstone rafts and upper fine-grained interval. A sequence boundary is marked by the sharp color change to light brown sandstones in the upper part of the outcrop.

Figure 3C. Folded Type 2 MTC strata (gray-colored, c. 5 m thick) at Rapanui Stream, Mount Messenger Formation. The same sequence boundary as in Figure 3B immediately overlies the MTC interval.
