Post-rift depositional packages, offshore Morocco Interpretation

VSA Author: Rob Butler
Date Created: 2009-11-30

This interpretation shows the basic architecture of the post-rift megasequence, offshore NW Morocco. The upper part of the section shows a series of off-lapping depositional wedges that record the migration of the shelf-slope system oceanward through time (progradation).
