By linking provenance indicators, estimated sediment supply, and depositional rate to exhumation episodes, it is possible to reconstruct timing and location of source to sink depositional pathways. The lower Miocene (LM; 23-15Ma) is an episode of voluminous sediment input to the Gulf of Mexico from erosion of North American interior highlands (Galloway, 2009; Galloway et al., 2011). This interval has gained increased attention from the oil and gas industry because of hydrocarbon potential beneath the thick salt canopy. However, inferred sediment transport pathways for this interval are based on consideration of likely river courses through known paleogeomorphological elements...
