Tcherepanov, Evgueni N.; Droxler, Andre W.; Lapointe, Philippe; Dickens, GR; Bentley, Sam J.; Beaufort, Luc; Peterson, Larry C.; Daniell, James J.; Opdyke, Bradley


This paper outlines the evolution of the late Cenozoic mixed carbonate-siliciclastic depositional system in the Gulf of Papua (GoP), using seismic, gravity, multibeam bathymetry, well data sets, and Landsat imagery. The deposition of the mixed sedimentary sequences was influenced by dynamic interplay of tectonics, eustasy, in situ carbonate production, and siliciclastic sediment supply. The roles of these major factors are estimated during different periods of the GoP margin evolution. The...[Show more]
