Abstract

This study was undertaken for the purpose of delineating the configuration of the Paradox salt wedge edge in relation to the Comb monocline structure. It was designed to illustrate whether or not, and to what extent, the Comb structure was a submarine barrier controlling deposition of sediments on the western shelf of the Paradox seaway during middle Paradox time.
