Despite the large number of outcrop studies published, few papers provide a precise documentation of stratal relationships and physical correlation of facies assemblages showing the transition from fluvial/flood related facies into shelf deposits. The detailed geometry of shelf perched deltas built during relative lowstand sea-level periods is of particular interest. Examples of Quaternary lowstand deltas have been described using high resolution seismic on the modern Quaternary shelf (e.g., Mahakam, Rhone, and Gulf of Mexico) but few ancient examples have been compared with these Quaternary analogs.
