Sedimentary structure

Sedimentary structures are created during the formation of the sediment. It may involve certain layering and structures in the stratigraphy that can help to reconstruct the depositional environment. Structures may also be used to determine whether or not the layers are still in their original position, or have overturned by tectonics. Here are a few examples of sedimentary structures.
