Although the stratigraphy of sedimentary basins depends on the balance between the magnitude and grain-size characteristics of the sediment supply (Qs) and the spatial distribution of tectonic subsidence generating accommodation σ(x), Qs is problematical to measure in present-day sediment routing systems and formidably difficult to predict in their ancient counterparts. This challenge was tackled by treating the sediment discharge from the outlet of mountain catchments as the result of incision… CONTINUE READING
