Abstract

A sparker profile across the Sigsbee scarp shows an interval with an anomalously high velocity which is interpreted to be salt extruded a distance of 10 km over flat-lying beds south of the scarp. The extrusion and the topographic form of the scarp are related to basinward flow of sediments and salt from under the thick shelf-slope sedimentary wedge.
