AbstractIn central Wisconsin, Cambrian strata of the Elk Mound Group record deposition on open-coast, wave-dominated tidal flats. Mature, medium-grained quartz arenite is dominated by parallel-bedding with upper-flow regime parallel-lamination, deposited during high-energy storms that also produced three-dimensional bedforms on the flats. Abundant wave ripples were produced as storms waned or during fair weather, in water depths
