Description 2005-8-13sC f159 is a natural accumulation in k14 that covers the whole unit. It is characterized by a mixture of very hard surfaces alternating with soft patches, probably due to the exposure or presence of water; the soft patches matrix is very fine in texture and characterized by the presence of little pebbles. The feature has a fine and soft texture and it is grayish in colour.

Stratigraphic reasons 2008-3-5pC elevation: below f156
Other reasons 2005-9-14mH Hardening of the surface: alternating hard lenses with softer patches of sand. These are the water deposits characteristic of the higher elevations of J2 and still visible in the western section.
2011-5-16cJC Same elevation as f125, see w203
2011-11-21cJC This feature spans the transition from the use area associated with the post-brickfall period, and the build-up that covered that use along with the large stone f154.
