Abstract: Pleistocene Climates, Sea Level and the Previous HitSeismicNext Hit Stratigraphic Record


Peter K. Trabant

High-resolution Previous HitseismicNext Hit records from the northern Gulf of Mexico reveal the fine-scale details of the Previous HitseismicNext Hit stratigraphy at the shelf edge and within deep water depositional environments. The high frequency records, commonly used for offshore engineering studies, provide an excellent tool towards understanding the detailed relationship between climate, sea level and the resulting Previous HitseismicNext Hit stratigraphy. Applications include: paleoenvironmental studies, reservoir engineering, petroleum exploration and the assessment of sea floor engineering properties.

Quality high-resolution Previous HitseismicTop records permit the correlation between small scale climatic changes and the 3-D configuration of sedimentary deposits, including systems tracts and short term events such as slumping and diapiric movements.
