The sequence stratigraphy of north Chilean mid-Pleistocene strata (Mejillones Formation) shows that the internal architecture and nature of bounding surfaces of component sequences change systematically along-strike and are controlled, through creation and loss of accommodation space, by the syndepositional movement of small-scale normal faults. Hangingwall sections comprise both the transgressive and falling-stage systems tracts, whereas on footwall crests only the falling-stage systems tract is present.

Abstract

The sequence stratigraphy of north Chilean mid-Pleistocene strata (Mejillones Formation) shows that the internal architecture and nature of bounding surfaces of component sequences change systematically along-strike and are controlled, through creation and loss of accommodation space, by the syndepositional movement of small-scale normal faults. Hangingwall sections comprise both the transgressive and falling-stage systems tracts, whereas on footwall crests only the falling-stage systems tract is present.
