Summary:A sedimentary model relating various facies to their degree of exposure to the mainly wind driven swell is set up and predicts facies distribution in the bay. Tests are made on 66 samples. Departures are explained by the narrowness of the bay, bathymetry, and the input of terrigenous clastic material. [R.V.T.]
