33. |
Remove all redundant parts not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

34. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

35. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the East Kennett formation of 21-06-2009. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
