Abstract:

Facies analysis indicates a deep marine depositional environment that sourced sediment loads from the shelf margins. Shelf margins are interpreted to have been narrow margins which were vulnerable to destabilisation at the shelf break when sediment exceeded accommodation space on the shelf. Destabilisation of the shelf break is interpreted to have generated turbidite flows that were deposited in the deep marine depositional environment.
