Figure F6. Three possible structural interpretations for the discontinuity at ~210 mbsf. BSR = bottom-simulating reflector. A. Propagation of the deformation related to the upper splay fault (USF) stops landward-of proposed Site NT2-03B. B. Deformation propagates on a detachment surface along, or more probably close, to the basal unconformity. C. Precisely at the location of proposed Site NT2-03B, a faint landward dipping reflector cutting the basin reflectors is shown. This can be interpreted as a thrust, although we cannot completely rule it out as a sedimentary feature. Such a thrust could be the updip extension of the USF covered with only a very thin gliding unit.
