This study analyzed energy accumulation in the strata vertically and found that non-competent strata are the primary carriers of energy accumulation in the interbedding strata.
The interbedding of the thin to medium bedded calcareous sandstone and the medium bedded oolitic grainstone in the upper part of the formation forms a subtidal type meter-scale cycle, which is composed of shallow ramp deposits (25m thickness).
The thickening Famennian sediments include organogenic limestones, dolomites with the interbedding of clays, marls and with massive sulphate- and salt-bearing beds.
Through the entire borehole columnar section analysis, it could be observed that the roof of 11215 working face belonged to interbedding of sandstone and mudstone, in which, the sandstone accounted for a high proportion.
Altered soluble sparry calcarenite and unaltered micrite presented the characteristics of interbedding and alternative occurrence.
The facies model, by which the depositional environments were interpreted, indicates that tidal flat deposits were followed by coastal lagoons and topped by a fluvial system with alluvial flats interbedding with meandering channels.
Detachment and initial tectonic transport of rockslides on the western flank of the Sierra de la Dehesa was mainly controlled by four structural elements: 1) parallel bedded strata; 2) lateral joints; 3) interbedding surface ruptures, and 4) layers dipping > 30[degrees], in the same direction of the slope.
The outcrops are predominantly red claystones placed on subordinate hard grey sandstone with interbedding narrow beds of siliceous nodules.
The seismic reflection feature with strong amplitude is possibly the comprehensive response of the interbedding of mudstone and oil shale.
