Stratigraphic evolution and architectural analysis of structurally confined submarine fans: a tripartite outcrop-based study
Structurally confined and ponded turbidite systems can serve as prolific hydrocarbon reservoirs, as well as important records of relative sea-level fluctuations, sediment transfer from non-marine environments to the deep sea, and tectonic episodes. Outcrop studies of these depositional systems yield sub-seismic levels of sedimentologic and stratigraphic detail. This dissertation comprises outcrop-based studies from two different structurally confined, distributive submarine fans: the Eocene Guaso I turbidite system, Ainsa basin, Spain, and the Miocene upper Modelo Formation, eastern Ventura ...
