Restored Deepwater thrust belt Interpretation

VSA Author: Rob Butler
Date Created: 2009-08-17

A structural interpretation of the thrust belt, offshore Namibia and restoration (b) used to estimate the amount of stratal shortening represented in the contractional domain. The section is shown with no significant vertical exaggeration (assuming a seismic velocity of 2.7 km/s). The thrusts are numbered for reference and do not imply a sequence of formation. The deformed distance be...
