The Alikayasi canyon–channel system of the Miocene Maras Basin, eastern Turkey, is compared with the South Brae fan, South Viking Graben, United Kingdom sector, North Sea, demonstrating the importance of outcrop analogs to subsurface oil reservoirs. The Alikayasi canyon–channel is a coarse-grained, deep-water slope depositional system that developed in a contractional tectonic setting south of a large continental landmass. Sediment was fed through large, stable river systems and fan deltas, across a relatively narrow continental shelf, through gullies directly into the head of the slope system. Coarse sediment supply at Alikayasi was continuous, but periodic increases in tectonism caused...
