Figure 16. Montage showing the depositional setting for Upper Jurassic (synrift) deposition along the active margins of the South Viking Graben and Moray Firth Basin. The cross section depicts the proximal-distal facies relationships seen in the Brae trend. The interdigitation between the coarse clastic apron and the sandstones in the basin axis are thought to reflect different sedimentary entry points from the immediate basin-margin and supply through a major relay ramp between two overlapping extensional faults, respectively (Erratt, 1993). OWC = oil-water contact; TVDSS = true vertical depth subsea.
