Variance extractions of channel top and MTC top. Lines show the location of the channel seismic cross-sections. The cross sections illustrate the changes in the architecture of the channel-levee complex in response to its location with respect to the underlying MTC. A more detailed explanation can be found in Ortiz-Karpf et al (2015). The link to the paper can be found in the docs and links tab.
