Friday fold: Macigno turbidites II

Posted by Callan Bentley

Samuele Papeschi contributes today’s fold photo:

These are

liquefaction-related folds in turbidites of the Macigno Formation sandstones at Cala del Leone, Livorno (Italy).

If that name sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the same formation that gave us another celebrated Friday Fold via Alan Pitts.

Great image, Samuele. Thanks for sharing.
