Deep-Water Pebbly Sandstones And Conglomerates -

Conglomerates can show grading, inverse grading, and stratification, the stratified types normally occurring farther basinward than unstratified or inversely graded types. Facies relationships suggest that massive and pebbly sandstones occur on the braided portion of suprafan lobes, in the mid-fan area of large submarine fans.

Deep-Water Sandstone Facies and Ancient Submarine

Pebbly sandstones tend to be well graded, and can contain parallel stratification and large-scale cross-stratification. Conglomerates are characterized by inverse and normal grading, parallel and cross-stratification, and commonly have a preferred clast fabric (imbrication). Both the pebbly sandstones and conglomerates commonly are channelized.

Sandstone - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

In some places fine- and medium-grained conglomerates or pebbly sandstones, coarse-grained sandstones and even thin anthracite-bearing coal layers occur. The material of the sandstones is quartz and white feldspar; muscovite also occurs in small grain sizes. The cementing material is silica. It contains a lot of plant fossils.

Sandstone Formation. Formation of the sandstones are cemented grains that may either be fragments of a pre-existing rock or be mono-minerallic crystals. The cements binding these grains together are typically calcite, clays, and silica. Grain sizes in sands are defined (in geology) within the range of 0.0625 mm to 2 mm (0.0025–0.08 inches).
