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 ...
3D seismic geomorphology and stratigraphy of the late Miocene to Pliocene Mississippi River Delta : fluvial systems and dynamics
This study uses a 1375 km2 3D seismic dataset located in the late Miocene to Pliocene Mississippi River Delta in order to investigate the external characteristics, lithology, and evolution of channelized deposits within ...
Dynamic stratigraphy and sediment partitioning of high-supply fluvial succession in Maastrichtian source-to-sink system
The sediment budget and paleogeography was reconstructed for the Maastrichtian fluvial to coastal plain Lance Formation (>200m thick) that developed coevally with the shoreline/shelf Fox Hills Sandstone (>200m thick) and ...
Evidence for changes in coastline-controlled base level from fluvial stratigraphy at Aeolis Dorsa, Mars
There is evidence that a subset of fluvial deposits at Aeolis Dorsa, a basin on Mars, preserve incised valleys carved and filled during changes in base level, which was likely controlled by water surface elevation of a ...
