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 [5].
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.

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 [11].
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).
The basin is asymmetrical, and probably the main depocenter is located at the southern border, near the fault.
