Seismic profiles, well logs, biostratigraphic data, and cross section restorations were integrated to investigate the relationships between salt tectonics and sedimentation in northern Green Canyon, Ewing Bank, and southwestern Eugene Island. Preliminary results address three aspects of salt-sediment interaction.

First, minibasins have characteristic stratigraphic stacking patterns that evolve from ponded to bypass settings. The transition may occur entirely within the slope environment or be associated with shelf progradation through the minibasin. The shift can sometimes be related to salt evacuation, and in other cases to regional variations in the location and volume of clastic input.

Second, different types of...
