load cast A bulbous depression formed on the base of a bed of sediment. Load casts develop by the differential sinking of the sediment, while still soft, into less dense sediment below. Load ‘casts’ are not strictly casts, as they do not infill an existing depression as in the case of flute casts (see FLUTE MARK).
