Separating tectonic, eustatic, and episodic depositional processes in the stratigraphic record of the basins of southeastern and northwestern Australia (Cretaceous Period)
Four dynamic processes interact to create the stratigraphic record in a basin: climate, sediment supply, eustasy, and subsidence. To identify the contribution of each of these processes, techniques that can uniquely separate ...
The evolution of the Brazos and Colorado fluvial/deltaic systems during the Late Quarternary: An integrated study, offshore Texas
The evolution of the Brazos and Colorado fluvial/deltaic systems over the last 190,000 years is examined. The data set includes high-resolution seismic data, lithostratigraphic data from offshore platform borings, cores ...
Petrogenesis of late Cenozoic volcanic rocks from the Raton-Clayton volcanic field, northeastern New Mexico and southeastern Colorado
Late Cenozoic volcanism on the Great Plains in northeastern New Mexico was closely related to the tectonic and thermal deformation along the transitional zone between the Colorado Plateau and southern Basin and Range ...
Mesozoic Geology of the Sand Springs Range, West-Central Nevada
Mesozoic structures and rock types mapped at a scale of 1:80000 in the Sand Springs Range (SSR), west-central Nevada, differ from those in adjacent allochthons. SSR structures and rock types contrast with those in better-known ...
Structural evolution of SE Mexico (Chiapas-Tabasco-Campeche) offshore and onshore
The Yucatan Platform bisects the NW-SE Sierra de Chiapas fold belt of SE Mexico at right angles. The outcropping Sierra de Chiapas involves Mesozoic platform carbonates, but its northwestern subsurface continuation involves ...
