Title: Sedimentary Structure Across Bottom of Gulf of Mexico: ABSTRACT

Author(s): M. Quarles, Jr.

Article Type: Meeting abstract


A continuous profile shot across the abyssal depths of the Gulf of Mexico shows sedimentary features that could constitute stratigraphic traps for hydrocarbons. Faulting is present but of minor importance. The edges of the abyssal plain are abrupt and difficult to explain. Continuous correlation of beds across the section demonstrates these structural features.
