Propagation of Environmental Signals within Source-to-Sink Stratigraphy

SEPM Field Trip Guidebook 13

Julian Clark, Cai Puigdefabregas, Sebastien Castelltort, and Andrea Fildani

Publication date: 2017
Subject: Stratigraphy
Series: Field Guide

This guidebook was compiled for the field trip excursions of the SEPM Research Conference on the Propagation of Environmental Signals within Source-to-Sink Stratigraphy, (June 4th-10th, 2017).  The world-class outcrop exposures and localities visited enabled the investigation of correlative stratigraphy from alluvial, fluvial, shallow marine, slope and deep marine environments with the direct observations of different segments of sediment routing systems.  Decades of research in the region have contributed to our understanding of the basin-filling stratigraphic response to orogenic evolution and climatic events.  These geologic insights and the well-preserved exposures have made the region a classic locality for both academic and industry-related geologic training, and a natural laboratory for continued research.

This guidebook was compiled for the field trip excursions of the SEPM Research Conference on the Propagation of Environmental Signals within Source-to-Sink Stratigraphy, (June 4th-10th, 2017).  The world-class outcrop exposures and localities visited enabled the investigation of correlative stratigraphy from alluvial, fluvial, shallow marine, slope and deep marine environments with the direct observations of different segments of sediment routing systems.  Decades of research in the region have contributed to our understanding of the basin-filling stratigraphic response to orogenic evolution and climatic events.  These geologic insights and the well-preserved exposures have made the region a classic locality for both academic and industry-related geologic training, and a natural laboratory for continued research.

This SEPM Field Trip Guidebook presents key outcrops visited during the conference within a source-to-sink framework.  The geologic map published herein is a cornerstone of this contribution, enabling and revising stratigraphic correlations required for this approach. An overview of source-to-sink concepts, methods and tools that can be applied to the stratigraphic record is provided, together with new data and analysis demonstrating environmental signals at different scales within the basin.
