Results of Model run 23-24 showing a sliced 3D view of the models (a, e), a dip-oriented cross-section through each model (c and f), equivalent seismic images of the same cross-section (d and g) and (b), a single chronostratigraphic diagram of the cross-section from Model run 23, to show the development of unconformities caused by coseismic footwall uplift exceeding regional subsidence under constant eustatic sea-level. It is important to notice that a relatively high slip rate (Model run 23 ) generates a small, fringing platform rather than affecting the margin stacking, which is still prograding, albeit at a lower rate. Conversely, the high production rates of the reef facies (Model run 24 ) lead to margin aggradation.
