In the offshore of East Texas, fluvial deltaic systems did not significantly impact upper slope stratigraphic sequences until very late during a sea level fall. During the last glacial-eustatic cycle, the ancestral Brazos River system prograded across the shelf depositing six separate delta lobes that compose the highstand systems tract. Over the same period, sedimentation on the upper slope was characterized by a condensed section. During deposition of the late Highstand Systems Tract, the Brazos fluvial-deltaic system deposited a shelf-margin delta 5 km updip of the shelf-edge, causing an increase in sedimentation on the upper slope. As sea level continued...
