AB - The growth and linkage of normal faults controls the sedimentology and stratigraphic architecture of syn-rift deposits; the facies and stratigraphic architecture of syn-rift deposits thus provides insights into the temporal and spatial development of syn-depositional fault arrays. In exhumed ancient rifts, exposures are typically too small to allow the erosional history of the source area to be linked to the stratigraphic record of the adjacent basin and, in the subsurface, seismic resolution is too poor and borehole data to sparse to allow the rift structural style, and sedimentology and stratigraphy of syn-rift deposits to be constrained. As a result, many rift basin tectono-stratigraphic models are largely conceptual and have yet to be tested by observations from natural examples. In this study we integrate 3D seismic reflection data with biostratigraphically constrained core and well data to elucidate the tectono-stratigraphic evolution of Middle-to-Late Jurassic syn-rift deposits adjacent to the Vingleia Fault Complex in the southern Halten Terrace, offshore Mid-Norway. The syn-rift succession is dominated by shelf-to-basinal mud and siltstones of the Melke and Spekk formations, although isolated coarse-clastics do occur. The spatial and temporal distribution of these coarse clastics is complex due to syn-depositional movement on the Vingleia Fault Complex. For example, coarse clastics are found either fringing basement highs, as footwall-derived fan-delta conglomerates, or adjacent to Jurassic fault scarps, as submarine fans and shoreface sandstones. High rates of accommodation generation led to the vertical stacking of aggradational fan deltas in the immediate hangingwall of the Vingleia Fault Complex, with these coarse clastics rapidly (<5 km) pinching out into fine-grained offshore deposits. On the footwall of the Vingleia Fault Complex, which is characterised by relatively low rates of accommodation generation, hangingwall shorelines developed downdip o
