Locus: F6L98:002 Supervisor: D. Herr
Locus type: Earth
Designation: Rock rubble & sub-topsoil
Start date: 26 Jun, 1987
End date: 28 Jun, 1989
Rationale
Reason: More rocks
Top separation: Unclear / Bottom separation: Average

Interpretation:
Function: Fill due to wind deposition & rock tumble; unknown origin of rocks for the tumble
Stratigraphy remarks: Above exposure Surf 3; since L 3 seals against Wall 4, it is obvious that L 2 was deposited after poss Terrace Wall 4 was built
