Cross-laminated sandstone composed primarily of well-rounded, coarse sand grains from the base of the Ulveso Formation. The Ulveso Formation has been interpreted as an immature aeolian deposit with a proglacial subaerial origin. This sample may have been deposited during a period of dry, windy conditions preceding the growth of a continental ice sheet. As ice accumulated, marine margin facies became remobilized and were deposited farther down the continental slope by the onset of glacial ice.
Sample is 5 cm across at its widest point.
This sample is from the Snowball Earth Educational Rock Sample Suite, and comes courtesy of Paul Hoffman, Harvard University; Eugene Domack, Hamilton College; and Timothy Fox, Hamilton College.
