Large-scale shifts in the shelf-edge location of deltaic depocenters have caused temporal and spatial fluxes in sediment supply that have exerted a significant control on the third-order reservoir stratigraphy of the Mars-Ursa, Auger-Macaroni, and Brutus-Bullwinkle intraslope basins, among the most productive areas in the deep water Gulf of Mexico(Fig. 1). Each basin has a producing interval characterized by a remarkably similar up-section transition from more sheet-like turbidite deposits to more channelized deposits, despite locations hundreds of miles apart, and different geologic ages. The transition is directly related to the changing position of the deltaic depocenter with respect to...
