Abstract

The faults shown in the seismic line occurred after the post-middle Miocene, and grew in a period from the post middle-Miocene to the Pliocene. The tilted strata deposited in the period differ in thicknesses across the faults, and the stratigraphic displacements along the fault planes increase downward. After the Pliocene, the faults stopped growing, and the younger sediments were deposited horizontally and uniformly.
