Interactions Between Growth Faults and Sedimentation

Abstract

The previous section described how overpressured shales could slide down extremely gentle slopes under their own weight, initiating listric normal faults at the updip end of the gliding mass. In a prograding margin such shales are subsequently buried beneath coarser regressive elastics. This progradational burial initiates several types of deformation that complicate analysis of the continental margin.
