The evolution of sediment supply to the South Atlantic margins

Talk Description
The supply of clastics into sedimentary basins has major implications for hydrocarbon prospectivity. Timing and character (grain size, composition, texture) are a function of hinterland evolution: the interplay of tectonics, climate and surface processes. Here we examine how geomorphological techniques are used to reconstruct palaeoriver systems, and how these results can then be used together with palaeogeography, palaeoDEMs and palaeoclimate to provide insights into probable sediment supply through time.
Such methods have particular resonance for current exploration in sub-salt and deep-water settings where data is sparse.
