For a complete discussion of the horizons present in the area of the margin, see the Jaunich paper (Part I) and composite seismic line immediately proceeding this one.

Seismic line 10 is a dip line across the zone of synsedimentary faults. Faulting occurs mainly in the P-to-L sequence, and seldom extends down to the level of horizon R Fault geometry is very complex in this area. Seismic section 10 is migrated and 10a unmigrated. Line 11 is a profile alor strike and hints at the extreme interpretation difficulties characteristic of this area.
