Summary-Gulf Coast Tertiary Paleomargins

Published:
January 01, 1984

Abstract

In the absence of large-scale depositional architecture that reflects the original shelf-slope break geometry, no single feature is diagnostic. However, the association of multiple criteria provides indirect evidence of the shelf-margin transition zone-a belt several miles wide in which “deep” and “shallow” water sands intermingle.
