Figure F4. Schematic stratigraphy of the Canterbury Basin, drilled during Expedition 317, at three different scales. Modified from Fulthorpe et al. (1996). A. Large-scale postrift stratigraphy (see profile location in Fig. F2). Onekakara, Kekenodon, and Otakou groups were deposited during regional transgressive, highstand, and regressive phases, respectively. B. Seismic-scale stratigraphy. Sediment drifts occur within the Otakou Group. Limestones are shown as distal facies of the uppermost transgressive Onekakara Group and lowermost regressive Otakou Group. C. Outcrop-scale stratigraphy across the Marshall Paraconformity.
