Seismic-stratigraphic analysis of shelf-margin delta/slope fan and basin floor fan on high-latitude and middle-latitude margins (Ross Sea, Weddell Sea and Alabama/West Florida shelf): Paleoclimatic and eustatic implications
This dissertation consists of three chapters describing seismic stratigraphic studies in three very different continental margin settings. The first chapter discusses the northwestern Ross Sea, the second discusses the ...
Late Tertiary tectonic evolution of the central Walker Lane, west-central Nevada and California
An integrated model is derived for the sequential development of tectonic events in time among different evolving component structural domains comprising the central Walker Lane, west-central Nevada, based on constraints ...
Tertiary evolution of the northeastern Venezuela offshore
On the northeastern offshore Venezuela, the pre-Tertiary basement consists of a deeply subducted accretionary complex of a Cretaceous island arc system that formed far to the west of its present location. The internal ...
Neogene evolution of the Pedro Channel carbonate system, northern Nicaragua Rise
Pedro Channel is the deepest, central-most seaway on the northern Nicaragua Rise. A revised bathymetric map illustrates a seafloor dissected by numerous canyons and gullies as well as portions of a drowned carbonate bank ...
The late Quaternary evolution of the Rio Grande system, offshore south Texas
A seismic and sequence stratigraphic investigation of the Rio Grande system provides information conceming: (1) the distribution of depositional units relative to the last glacio-eustatic cycle (120,000 ybp to present); ...
