The effects of lateral tectonics on a fluvio-deltaic system : an application to the Ganges Brahmaputra Delta
Deltaic systems have long been recognized for their socioeconomic impacts as well as their high potential to trap and store hydrocarbons. The Sediment Transport and Earth-surface Process (STEP) basin at the University of ...
The Pennsylvanian Lower Strawn Group, Jack and Wise Counties, Fort Worth Basin : facies distribution and stratigraphic architecture
The Lower Strawn Group in Jack and Wise counties of the Fort Worth Basin are laterally and vertically heterogeneous deltaic deposits comprising sandstones, siltstones, and shales with thin, discontinuous carbonates and ...
Response of minibasin subsidence to variable deposition : experiments and theory
Differential loading induced deformation of a mobile substrate (e.g., salt tectonics) is an important process for the development of accommodation space and stratigraphic architectures in intra-slope minibasins. Numerous ...
Anatomy of deltaic compound clinoforms : Colorado Delta in Baja California, Mexico, Pliocene Colorado Delta in Fish Creek-Vallecito Basin, California, USA, and a review of modern examples
Modern Delta systems commonly exhibit compound clinoforms that consist of two elements, a shoreline clinoform, and a separate subaqueous clinoform, both with a topset–foreset–bottomset morphology, with a wide low-gradient ...
Lithofacies, depositional environment, and stratigraphic architecture of the deep-water hybrid mudrock system of the Pennsylvanian (Desmoinesian) Cherokee Group, Anadarko Basin, Texas Panhandle
The Cherokee Group in the western Anadarko Basin, northeastern Texas Panhandle, is a Desmoinesian hybrid system of mudrocks interbedded with sandstones and carbonates in a deep- water foreland basin that had poor circulation ...
