Nevertheless, a problem remains with this inter­ pretation in that it is difficult to understand why the Heterolithic Sands shoal complex accreted steadily to a thickness of 25 m , without being dissected by a migrating channel system. However, the similarity between the Heterolithic and Orange Sands leads us to infer a laterally interfingering relationship (Fig.
