Various interpretations of the origin of these anticlines and their attendant inboard synclines at the graben boundary have been previously published, with both gravity-driven processes and inversion being invoked. Based on regional interpretation of 3-D seismic data sets and analysis of thickness variations in uppermost Jurassic and Cretaceous sequences in numerous wells, it is concluded that gravity-driven processes were more important than...
