48. |
Leaving out everything not visible within the formation itself, ... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

49. |
...and colouring all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

50. |
...or to flattened crop, finish the reconstruction of the Boxley formation of 17-07-2005. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
