The Arro turbidites (Eocene San Vicente Formation) were deposited as part of the infill of the Ainsa basin during the foredeep stage of basin development. Their maximum thickness is 180 m (590 ft) with a preserved length of 16 km (10 mi) and width of 4 km (2.5 mi). Net-to-gross is approximately 40%. The Arro turbidites have been interpreted as a canyon-mouth sheet system that was deposited in a base-of-slope setting. The system is elongate with deposition occurring in the axis of the foredeep basin. Flanking the deposits was an active margin slope. The Arro turbidites have been correlated...
