In order to evaluate the relationship between thrust loading and sedimentary facies evolution, we analyse the progradation of fluvial coarse-grained deposits in the retroarc foreland basin system of the northern Andes of Colombia. We compare the observed sedimentary facies distribution with the calculated one-dimensional (1D) Eocene to Quaternary sediment-accumulation rates in the Medina wedge-top basin and with a three-dimensional (3D) sedimentary budget based on the interpretation of ±1800… CONTINUE READING
