This website, designed for a Sediments and Strata course at the University of California- Davis, contains numerous photographs of turbidite sequences in outcrop. Photos are divided into two categories; turbidites in the Cretaceous Pigeon Point Formation and turbidites in the Cretaceous Great Valley Sequence. Users may also follow a link to other sedimentary photos.
