Figure F8. Interpreted and uninterpreted high-resolution multichannel seismic Profile WEGA W30 across the continental rise. Interpretation after Donda et al. (2003). This profile shows the upsection increase in the energy of the depositional environment above unconformity WL-U3 as a response to margin progradation. Note that the high-volume of sediment supply to the continental rise takes place between unconformities WL-U5 and WL-U7. Above unconformity WL-U7, a decrease in the sediment supply to the continental rise corresponding with a shift in depocenters to the base of the slope is apparent.
