Definition This member is a well-defined, pink to grey, (sub-)arkosic sandstone unit, frequently displaying a distinct, blocky character on the gamma-ray logs. The member contains reworked material of the underlying formation in its lower part, which in general is strongly cemented. Reworked clay blocks may cause high gamma-ray readings in this basal interval. A gradual interfingering transition exists between the Volpriehausen Sandstone Member and the overlying Volpriehausen Clay-Siltstone Member.
