Abstract

The Paleocene chicontepec Formation outcrops along the western margin of the Tampico embayment, also known as the Tam- pico-Misantla Basin, located in northeastern Mexico. The sequence records deposition in a deep-marine, foreland basin between the Golden Lane atoll and the Sierra Madre Oriental. In the northern part of this outcrop belt, slope deposition is recorded primarily by undeformed and deformed thin-bedded turbidites with occasional sand-rich lobes, channel-fills, and debrites. The sedimenttransport and slumping direction was to the east and southeast
