Pliocene-Pleistocene depositional sequences of the northern Gulf of Mexico, offshore Texas and Louisiana
This work tests the consistency of sequence stratigraphic methods by comparing the model documented in this study with previous models for growth faulted, siliciclastic environments. Interpretations derive from sequence ...
Seismic facies investigation of the late Cenozoic glacial history of Bransfield Basin, Antarctica
Approximately 3000 km of high and intermediate resolution seismic data and 117 sediment cores were examined to reconstruct the late Cenozoic glacial history of Bransfield Basin, Antarctica. The complexity of a glacial ...
Computer simulation of stratigraphy
Simulation of stratigraphy coupled with sequence stratigraphic and backstripping analysis quantitatively defines the timing and magnitude of geologic events, including the history of sediment supply, tectonism and eustasy. ...
Sequence stratigraphy of the Middle to Upper Jurassic, Viking Graben area, North Sea
The Middle to Upper Jurassic in the Viking Graben area was deposited during an overall transgression. Tectonics, eustasy, sediment supply and sediment source area control facies distribution. The Lower Toarcian to the base ...
Origin and stratigraphic evolution of the Maldives (central Indian Ocean)
The Maldive Ridge is a volcanic lineament overlain by locally 3.3 km of mostly shallow-water carbonate sediments. The Maldive basement appears on seismic profiles as a volcanic plateau generated during two distinct eruptive ...
Tectonic evolution of the Gibraltar Arc
The Betic Cordillera of Spain and the Moroccan Rif constitute the northern and southern branches of the Gibraltar Arc, which is the western limit of the Alpine-Mediterranean system. The frontal units (i.e. the Guadalquivir ...
