Tertiary Gulf Coast Growth Faulting

Published:
January 01, 1984

Abstract

A cross section through the growth-fault trend of South Texas is shown in figure 1. The extension domain continues onto the shelf (fig. 2). Whether these faults are due to upward propagation of older growth faults that originally marked an older shelf edge, or whether they denote weak extension caused by Gulfward creep down very gentle slopes is not known.
