Basin-floor fans and slope fans present major differences in their internal architecture related to changes in: (1) margin morphology, (2) relative sea-level change, and (3) sediment supply. These variations are illustrated in the outcrops of the Pab Sandstone in Pakistan. The Pab Sandstone third-order sequence was deposited on the Indo-Pakistani margin during the Upper Maastrichtian. Uplift of the margin induced erosion on the shelf, incision of submarine canyons on the slope and the development of a sand-rich, high-efficiency basin-floor fan extending over hundreds of kilometres on the basin floor. During transgression, sediment accumulated in backstepping shoreface deposits on the...
