Understanding and predicting architecture and facies distribution of syn-rift carbonates is challenging owing to complex control by climatic, tectonic, biological and sedimentological factors. CarboCAT is a three-dimensional stratigraphic forward model of carbonate and mixed carbonate–siliciclastic systems that has recently been developed to include processes controlling carbonate platform development in extensional settings. CarboCAT has been used here to perform numerical experiment investigations of the various processes and factors hypothesized to control syn-rift carbonates sedimentation. Models representing three tectonic scenarios have been calculated and investigated, to characterize facies distribution and architecture of carbonate platforms developed on half-grabens, horsts and transfer zones....
