Links Between Faulting, Topography, and Sediment Production During Continental Rifting: Insights From Coupled Surface Process, Thermomechanical Modeling

Abstract :  Coupled, thermo-mechanical models show that during continental rifting, the sediment flux reflects the topographic evolution of rifts.  High crustal strength, slow extension and efficient surface processes promote strain localization and sediment production.  Models show that a time-lag of 2-5 Myr between the main tectonic activity and the peak in sediment flux could exist for natural systems.
