Photofacies: 1 = 1 Grayish black, medium sand, 2 = Grayish black, medium to coarse sand, 3 = Greenish black, coarse sand, 4 = Medium dark gray + light olive, coarse to very coarse sand, 5 = Medium dark gray, very coarse sand; pebbles, cobbles, 6 = Shell detritus.
Mineralogy type: I = Ca. 2.5% mafic, volcanic glass, II = Ca. 5% mafic, rock fragments, rare volcanic glass, III = Terrigenous fraction like II, ca. 25% biogenic carbonates, IV = Terrigenous fraction similar to II, ca. 50% biogenic carbonates.
Grain size group: A = Bimodal fine sand, B = Bimodal medium sand, C = Medium sand, D = Coarse sand, E = Coarse sand between pebbles, cobbles, F = Coarse to very coarse sand.
Lithofacies class: 1 = Widespread, late Holocene deposit, 2a = Widespread, early Holocene deposit, some mixing with facies 1, 2b = Patches, early Holocene deposit, 3a = Widespread, early Holocene deposit, 3b = Patches, the oldest early Holocene deposit, 4 = Only at Okurei Point, transported shells mixed with facies 2b, 5 = Only south of Motiti Island, facies 2a/3a influenced by local sources, 6 = Shell detritus.
