VSA Author: Rob Butler
Date Created: 2020-01-20

This is the annotated version - with labelled megasequences and selected structures. Note that the boxed area (R side) is considered to have a high uncertainty - stemming from problems correlating stratal reflectors which are rather discontinuous here.
