The Upper Ordovician in the Tarim Basin contains 5000–7000 m of siliciclastic and calciclastic deep-water, gravity-flow deposits. Their depositional architecture and palaeogeographical setting are documented in this investigation based on an integrated analysis of seismic, borehole and outcrop data. Six gravity-flow depositional–palaeogeomorphological elements have been identified as follows: submarine canyon or deeply incised channels, broad and shallow erosional channels, erosional… CONTINUE READING
