Abstract Since the middle Miocene, a series of northeastward unidirectionally migrating canyons (UMCs) have developed in the Baiyun Sag, Pearl River Mouth Basin. Seven closely spaced submarine canyons have been investigated in detail under the integrated analysis of 2D/3D seismic and well data. Five architectural elements of canyon-fill deposits are identified: basal lag (BL), slump and debris-flow deposits (SDFDs), canyon confined sheets (CCSs), laterally inclined packages (LIPs) and channel… CONTINUE READING
