Foreland flexural extension and salt diapir reactivation in oblique extensional systems
The Timor foreland basin, as a young, under-filled foreland basin seated on the NW margin of Australia, formed in the Neogene as a result of the subduction-collision between Northwest Australia and the Banda Arc. It provides us a great opportunity to investigate flexural extensional structures in the early-stage foreland development. Based on detailed seismic interpretation and fault analysis using 2D/3D seismic data, this thesis shows that the timing of flexural normal faulting on the foredeep part of the basin is from late Miocene to present, which is generally consistent with the development ...
