Channel-lobe complex

The channel-lobe complex as the dominant depositional system indicates a dynamic fluidized current as the agent of deposition. The presence of relatively parallel layers suggests deposition by turbulent flows. The ability of the current to transport abundant sediment that create a very broad channel-lobe system (up to several kilometers) indicates that this current is high density and possibly high velocity.
