    Sedimentology and significance of an early syn-rift paleovalley, Wadi Tayiba, Suez Rift, Egypt

    , Journal of African Earth Sciences, Vol: 52, Pages: 62-68

    Wadi Tayiba is located along the western margin of the Hammam Faraun fault block, western Sinai, Egypt and is generally thought to contain exposures of the ‘type-section’ for late pre-rift to early syn-rift stratigraphy associated with the Oligo-Miocene Suez Rift. Previous studies have suggested a complex vertical succession of sedimentary facies characterise the late pre-rift to early syn-rift and imply major and abrupt variations in relative sea-level during this time. Detailed sedimentological and stratigraphic analysis of the Wadi Tayiba type-section presented in this study identifies not only a far simpler vertical facies succession than previously suggested but also the development of a major paleovalley system at the base of the early syn-rift succession. It is suggested that this subtle but significant feature is the cause of the complex vertical facies succession previously interpreted. It is concluded that continuous marine sedimentation and only moderate amplitude variations in relative sea-level occurred during the Eocene to Early Oligocene within at least this part of the Suez Rift. A major relative sea-level fall occurred during the middle Oligocene and a regionally developed erosional surface associated with this event marks the contact between late pre-rift and early syn-rift strata. The results of this study have major implications for sub-regional correlations of late pre-rift to early syn-rift stratigraphic units and resultant palaeogeographic reconstructions of the late pre-rift to early syn-rift period.

    Submarine slope morphology as a control on the development of sand-rich turbidite depositional systems: 3D seismic analysis of the Kyrre Fm (Upper Cretaceous), Maloy Slope, offshore Norway

    , MAR PETROL GEOL, Vol: 25, Pages: 663-680, ISSN: 0264-8172

    Three-dimensional seismic and well data are integrated to investigate the geometry and controls on a series of sand-rich slope systems in the Kyrre Fm (Upper Cretaceous) on the Maloy Slope, offshore Norway. Slope systems were fed by sediments eroded from mainland Norway to the east and transported across a relatively narrow shelf into four canyons developed at the shelf edge. These canyons were not formed through erosional or mass-wasting processes during the Late Cretaceous, but represent a series of underfilled canyons developed during an earlier. Late Jurassic erosional phase. Channels, which are commonly arranged into laterally or vertically stacked channel complexes, were fed sediment through the shelf-edge canyons and may be associated downslope with small terminal fans. The canyons and their associated depositional systems were not active synchronously, with a clear southward migration of the active depositional systems. On the slope, syn-depositional topography was formed via: (i) differential compaction of mudstone-rich strata across underlying Late Jurassic canyons which resulted in the formation of a series of E-W-trending structural lows; and (ii) differential compaction of mudstone-rich strata across the underlying Late Jurassic fault blocks which resulted in N-W-trending structural highs. Both of these features had a variable influence on the incision, fill and overall spatial distribution of slope channels/channel complexes and associated fans. A large fan which overlies the shelf-edge canyons and associated downslope depositional systems represents the final depositional unit within the study area. The fan effectively 'seals' the underlying shelf-edge canyons, suggesting it was not supplied by sediment routed through the canyons. The results of this study support previous studies which indicate that shelf-edge canyons may be a first-order control on the location of sand-rich, turbidity current-fed depositional systems on submarine slopes.

    Temporal constraints on basin inversion provided by 3D seismic and well data: a case study from the South Viking Graben, offshore Norway

    , Basin Research, Vol: 20, Pages: 397-417

    Three-dimensional (3D) seismic, well and biostratigraphic data are integrated to determine the timing of inversion on the hangingwall of the South Viking Graben, offshore Norway. Within the study area two, NW–SE to NE–SW trending normal faults are developed which were active during a Late Jurassic rift event. In the hangingwall of these faults asymmetric, 2–5 km wide anticlines are developed which trend parallel to the adjacent faults and are interpreted as growth folds formed in response to compressional shortening (inversion) of the syn-rift basin-fill. Marked thickness variations are observed in Late Jurassic and Early Cretaceous growth strata with respect to the inversion-related folds, with seismic data indicating onlap and thinning of these units across the folds. In addition, well data suggests that not only are erosional surfaces only locally developed towards the crests of the folds, but these surfaces may also truncate underlying flooding surfaces towards the fold crests. Taken together, these observations indicate that inversion and growth of inversion-related structures initiated in the late Early Volgian and continued until the Late Albian. Furthermore, it is demonstrated that individual folds amplified and propagated laterally through time, and that fold growth was not synchronous across the study area. This study demonstrates that the temporal evolution of structures associated with the inversion of sedimentary basins can be accurately determined through the integration of 3D seismic, well and biostratigraphic data. Furthermore, this study has local implications for constraining the timing of inversion within the South Viking Graben during the Late Mesozoic.
