... shallow, and was never deeply buried until halokinetic collapse began. This contrasts sharply with the Campeche Salt margin of Mexico, which was drowned to truly basinal depths in the Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous due to far higher rates of post-rift thermal subsidence and weak clastic sediment supply...

...Michael R. Hudec; Ian O. Norton ABSTRACT The Isthmian salt basin in the southern Gulf of Mexico can be divided into the Yucatán and Campeche subbasins, separated by a base-salt high near the nose of the Yucatán platform. Despite their proximity, these two subbasins experienced radically different...

... the origin of salt domes in this region. Basement structures apparently are coincidental with the area in which salt diapirism has occurred in the Bay of Campeche, and could have been the mechanism by which formation of the diapirs was initiated and subsequently controlled. 1 Manuscript received...

... the mentioned wells, other nearby wells were used for a more precise calibration. These calibrations were adequate compared to the known bottom-hole temperature, gradient, and heat flow data in the area of Campeche Sound. The salt acts as a catalyst for maturation of the kerogen; however, it may also retard...

... clastic and carbonate provinces in the northern Gulf and that the Campeche Canyon plays a similar role in the southwestern part of the basin. Most salt diapirs in the region lie west of a line connecting the two canyons, but recent work suggests the presence of some diapiric structures east of the line...

The limited east-west distribution and the lack of magnetic signature suggest that Campeche Sheli and slope diapirs are salt...

... and eastward into the Straits of Florida area. A thick salt basin overlies this continental crust in the area north and west of the Campeche Scarp, where it forms a band of salt structure 50 to 100 km wide (Sigsbee salt dome province).

... was split into two salt basins (Louann and Campeche). This phase continued until Valanginian time based on tectonic analysis work (Pindell et al., 2002). Seafloor spreading stressed the salt causing mobilization and resulted in normal growth faults in the Jurassic-Mesozoic sediment column that was being...

This continental sequence is overlain by Middle Jurassic (Callovian) evaporites, consisting mostly of salt, which has intruded the overlying Upper Jurassic, Cretaceous, and Cenozoic strata. The Campeche salt averages about 2000 m (6562 ft) thick, thins to less than 500 m (1640 ft) to the east...

The stratigraphic sequence of the Upper Jurassic in the Campeche shelf is composed principally of carbonates and terrigenous rocks, having a wide distribution throughout the area. Underlying these deposits are thick bodies of salt and evaporites that have intruded locally into part...
