Publication date: Available online 22 January 2020Source: Physics of the Earth and Planetary InteriorsAuthor(s): Majid Khan, Yike Liu, Syed Zaheer Ud DinAbstractPreserved deformed depositional sequences along passive continental margins are important repositories of natural resources as well as key laboratories for understanding rift-drift tectonics. With better post signal processing schemes, interpretation techniques, and potential data, imaging sedimentary basins along these margins has reached unique levels of refinement. This, in turn, has led to considerable improvement in unfolding the complex tectono-sedimentary history since rifting to basin development. In this paper, deep reflection seismic coupled with well data and biostratigraphic information have been used to decipher the third-order depositional sequences of Meso-Cenozoic succession in western parts of the Indian Plate Passive Continental Margin (Offshore Indus Basin) as pioneer research. Based on morpho-tectonic considerations, the depositional sequences are divided into syn-rift, passive margin, and post-rift stages deformed by steeply dipping normal faults. Using the principles of classic sequence stratigraphy, five third-order mappable depositional sequences have been recognized on seismic records that are controlled by regional tectonics and sea-level fluctuations coupled with sedimentation type and rates in the region. The associated system tracts were recognized and mapped based on genetic reflection te...
