I'm a little late in the discussion here, but just a quick question - did Berthault's (sp?) demonstrate that this layering can produce cyclical laminae?
Here is what I mean.
Each number represents a type of material. Were the sediments like this:
1
2
3
4
or like this:
1
2
1
2
1
2
?
just curious.

With 1 being one type of sediment, 2 being another?
