This programme shows the great complexity of shelf sediments and how their characteristics are influenced by both wave and tidal process. we've examined one shelf sedimentary sequence in the Rockies which was strongly influenced by storm activity. And in a quarry near leighto Buzzard, we found an example from the English cretaceous, a classic example of a sequence strongly influenced by tides.
