Abstract

The simulation program, which uses empirical relationships to model basin fill, successfully reproduced the geometries seen on the seismic lines, indicating that the proposed interplay of mechanisms could have built the observed platform architecture. The simulation demonstrated, in particular, that in a setting like the Bahamas, a basin must be substantially filled before progradation can take place, and that sea level changes can drive the pulses of progradation. -from Authors
