Figure F31. Schematic model showing a submarine slide event that could create the discrepancy between the biostratigraphic hiatus and the inclined bedding. A. Initial deposition. B. Sliding and surface redeposition. C. Unconformity formation. Core recovery together with intense drilling disturbance in Cores 322-C0012A-1R through 22R, however, precludes a more detailed understanding of the bedding dips in lower part of Unit III and upper part of Unit IV.
