Zheng et al. provide evidence based on facies, geometry, and sandbody orientation and thickness that the incised-valley fill mentioned by Jiang et al. (2012) is in actuality a barrier island. Jiang et al. offer additional proof based on core, well logs, thin section, field study, seismic analysis, and well correlation to reinforce their original interpretation.
