At Enderts Beach a subhorizontal shear zone places northwest to southeast-dipping, thinlybedded, facies E turbidites above thickly-bedded, facies B and C sandstones (Figures 30 and 31). The shear zone is estimated to be 10 m thick at the maximum, but its upper contact is not exposed. The thinly bedded turbidites probably are overlevee interchannel or interlobe submarine fan deposits, once in depositional contact with channel or suprafan lobe sandstones (Aalto, 1986b) .
