7) has no sandy material but very soft clay; however, a slightly harder part (higher N-value) occurs at depths of between 5 and 7 m, which might correspond to the Upper Sand (US; Kaizuka et al., 1977) or the foreset bed of the delta.
Specific architectural elements include gravel bar-platform deposits (including bar head, bar core, and bar tail sub-elements), suprabar-platform deposits (laminated sand sheets and chute channel-fills), bar-margin foreset deposits, and sandy 2-D and 3-D dune deposits.

The sandstone beds within this facies are characterized by wave ripples and wave-modified ripples, tidal bundles represented by mud-draped foresets, climbing ripples, flaser beddings, bidirectional ripples, mutually opposite cross-strata sets, vertical and lateral accretion of cross-strata sets with prominent reactivation surfaces, and so forth.
