Abstract

High-amplitude and high-frequency lake-level variations may cause the resulting depositional sequence and facies architecture to be more complex than on passive margins. Controls on sequence development may be more closely coupled than on passive margins. Progradational clinoform depositional packages are uncommon. Erosional truncation surfaces are more readily observed in these seismic data than are downlap surfaces. -from Authors
