Sedimentary basins form part of the earth's crust, or lithosphere; they are generally distinguishable from granitic continental and basaltic oceanic crust by their lower densities and slower seismic velocities.

Beneath these crustal elements is the more continuous subcrustal lithosphere. The crust is thin, dense, and topographically low across the ocean basins, but. The Gulf of Mexico (GoM) is the ninth largest body of water in the world (including ocean basins) with an outer shoreline extending approximately 6, kilometers (km) (3, miles [mi]) from the Florida Keys to the northwest coast of Cuba (Moretzsohn et al.

).The Gulf encompasses an area of approximately million km 2 ( million mi 2), and with an Cited by: 5. The limestones and dolomites of the Upper Jurassic Smackover have been a target for explorationists for almost half a century.

Ruttenberg *, M.A. Gom l Department of Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry, Woods Hole Ocnographie Institution, Woods Hole, MA Cited by: The accurate prediction of the stratigraphic occurrence of deepwater systems is important for petroleum exploration as well as development.

For exploration, sequence stratigraphy establishes the chronostratigraphic framework for the basin, thus determining the relationships between shallow marine and continental sediments (highstand) and subsequent deep marine deposits. Coastal restoration in Louisiana requires clean sands for beach and dune restoration, whereas mixed sediments are required to rebuild marshes.

The Louisiana coastal erosion problem is especially dire because it occurs on several fronts with the narrowing and overtopping of barrier islands and loss of back barrier bay and interior marshlands.

Most of the sediments comprising this part of the delta plain originate from the migratory tendency of distributary channels, overbank flooding during annual highwater periods, and periodic breaks in the river banks, in which "crevassing" into adjacent lake basins occurs.
