Sinuous Ridge Emergent from beneath Crater Ejecta

Ridge, Rising
This image shows an interesting stratigraphic relation where a “fluvial ridge” emerged from within or beneath yardang-forming material and crater ejecta. Regarding the ridge, our interest here is to examine details of sedimentary structure and to seek better understanding of the percentage of fluvial sediment vs. substrate vs. overburden.
