Yang et al. (2017b) have advocated the importance of hyperpycnites by using a genetic facies model proposed for deposits of hyperpycnal flows by Mulder et al. (2003). The problem is that the authors have ignored experimental flume results and other empirical field data that discredited the model. This discussion is a rigorous evaluation of data, documentation, and the facies model.
