evolution and basin development of Colombia and western Venezuela.
It also questions commonly accepted interpretations of facies relationships in the axial region of the Central Maine depocenter
lsopach maps ofBasal sands and Lower Gorn formations showing the increase in thickness towards south-west indicating the depocenter
towards this direction.
The thicknesses of the sequences are different, but the main depocenter
thicknesses of the Edremit, Gediz, Buyuk Menderes and Denizli grabens are in the range of 1500 to 3000 m .
, Neuquen Basin, Mendoza Province, Argentina.
The southernmost depocenter
for the Simpson Group was a broad, shallow, gently dipping depression referred to as the Tobosa Basin, a tectonic basin that was the precursor to the Permian Basin (Galley, 1958; Adams, 1965; Wright, 1965; Jones, 2009), At the time of Simpson Group deposition, the Tobosa Basin was separated from the Anadarko Basin by a peninsula that was an extension of the Transcontinental arch, also referred to as the Texas arch (Wright, 1965; Jones, 2009), The Simpson Group has been generally correlated with the St.

evolution and basin development of Colombia and Western Venezuela.
The reflection measurements from the 1980s (profiles 11, 20) reaching the MHB from the adjacent Mseno Roudnice Basin proved the existence of a depocenter
on the southwest (Chudomel et al.
The thick sedimentary column would contribute to the pressure necessary for the fluids lateral migration from the depocenter
towards the basin flanks .
This area is the purported depocenter
for suspended sediments originating from the Mississippi River funneled by alongshore flow down the Texas coast (Cochrane & Kelly 1986, Siringan & Anderson 1994) and is characterized by a well-developed nepheloid layer (Shideler 1981).

along the Northeast Margin of the Maracaibo Basin: Structure along an Exhumed, Eocene Age Lateral Ramp Fault in the Maracaibo Basin, Western Venezuela.
The basin is asymmetrical, and probably the main depocenter
is located at the southern border, near the fault.
