Abstract Kinneyia structures are among the most typical wrinkle structures observed on ancient siliciclastic sediment surfaces since the Archean. Recently, Kinneyia structures have been grouped together with other microbially induced, crinkly decorations on ancient bedding surfaces as wrinkle structures. They are mainly preserved on upper surfaces of ancient siliciclastic-event deposits and are characterized by millimeter-scale, winding, flat-topped crests separated by equally sized round… 

KINNEYIA-TYPE WRINKLE STRUCTURES ON SANDSTONE BEDS: NOT MICROBIALLY INDUCED BUT DEFORMATION FEATURES CAUSED BY SYNSEDIMENTARY EARTHQUAKES

Abstract: A category of wrinkle structures, often termed Kinneyia structure or Runzel marks, comprises bedding plane features consisting typically of anastomosing, low-relief, flat-topped ridges with

Formation of Kinneyia via shear-induced instabilities in microbial mats

It is proposed that the key mechanism involved in the formation of Kinneyia is a Kelvin–Helmholtz-type instability induced in a viscoelastic film under flowing water.

Kinneyia: A Flow-Induced Anisotropic Fossil Pattern from Ancient Microbial Mats

Kinneyia is the commonly-used term to describe a class of trace fossil that is strongly associated with microbial mats. The appearance of Kinneyia (or wrinkle-structures) in the fossil record has

Early Triassic wrinkle structures on land: stressed environments and oases for life

Three newly studied terrestrial P-Tr boundary rock succession in North China have yielded diverse wrinkle structures, suggesting that extreme environmental stresses were prevalent both in the sea and on land through most of the Early Triassic.

Hypothesized Cambrian medusae from Saint John, New Brunswick, reinterpreted as sedimentary structures

More than a hundred radial and discoidal structures occur on bed tops of shales and very fine sandstones of the Cambrian (Series 3) King Square Formation in New Brunswick, Canada. These structures

Abstract: Unusual preservation of small primaspid trilobites may provide a key to interpretation of an enigmatic, apparently organically textured surface or sedimentary structure in the subtidal
