(a) downwind (b) upwind (c) in deeper waters offshore (d) symmetrically distributed about the river channel mouths (e) both (c) and (d) 24. What type of delta will typically form on a sheltered shoreline? (a) cross bed dominated (b) mud dominated (c) sand dominated (d) river dominated (e) wind dominated 25. When a transgression occurs what type of depositional sequence will form in a delta? (a) uniform grain size (b) fining upwards (c ) fining downwards (d) alternating grain size (e) none of the above 26. Which of the following is a potential barrier to fluid flow in a reservoir? (a) bounding surface (b) fault plane (c) hiatuses (d) mud layers (e) all of the above 27. Sand dunes are typically asymmetric in shape due to the wind having a preferred direction.
