This study uses the example of two small sedimentary basins to draw lessons for the stacking patterns of submarine fan facies in restricted basins. The Te Anau and Waiau basins are located in southwest New Zealand. They developed from the Middle Eocene onwards close to and under the direct influence of the evolving Australia-Pacific plate boundary. Although never more than a few tens of kilometres wide, both basins accumulated sedimentary successions more than 6 km thick. We discuss the scale, nature and composition of submarine fans within the basins. Sediment stacking patterns are characterized by rapid lateral and vertical...
