Dip direction of torrential cross-bedding is a vectorial property providing a rapid measure of the local direction of sediment transport. Over measurements in the basal Pennsylvanian Caseyville and Mansfield sandstones of southern Illinois and Indiana were taken, to explore its possibilities and limitations as a measure of direction of regional sediment transport.

The surface of the Mississippian-Pennsylvanian unconformity in the Illinois basin is characterized by an anastomosing pattern of paleovalleys eroded by the ancient Michigan River system.

Fluvial sandstones deposited within these valleys commonly were buried by transgressive Pennsylvanian marine shales, creating the potential for stratigraphic.

Various analyses were conducted to examine the causes of this velocity pull-up. The near-surface, within this region, contains many surfaces that may give rise to a velocity pull-up, including (1) the layer of weathered Pennsylvanian bedrock; (2) the Mississippian-Pennsylvanian Unconformity; and (3) an unconformity within Pennsylvanian section.
