Based largely on grain size distribution, we interpret the material that buries the basal soil as eolian sand. Above these lower soils the Entisols typically show a fair amount of relief in outcrop patterns that appear topographically to reflect parts of earlier dune forms (Figure 5).
Eolian sand in the uppermost mud is variable, and occasional bands of sand may relate to when the dunes lost their wooded cover -400 yr.
