Movie Description
Movie 1. Convergence Development of convergent stratal patterns through time. Corresponds to case 1.
Movie 2. Onlap Development of onlap through time. Corresponds to case 2.
Movie 3. Sinusoidal input no bypass Stratal patterns through time that result from a sinusoidal sediment input curve and constant subsidence, without sediment bypass. Corresponds to case 3.
Movie 4. Sinusoidal input and bypass Stratal patterns through time that result from a sinusoidal sediment input curve and constant subsidence, with sediment bypass. Corresponds to case 4.
Movie 5. Constant to sinusoidal input constant subsidence no bypass This movie illustrates the influence of sediment input variability on stratal patterns. Subsidence is kept constant while the sediment input curve changes from constant to sinusoidally varying.
Movie 6. Constant to sinusoidal input constant subsidence and bypass Similar to movie #5, but with larger overall sediment input so that sediment bypass is present.
Movie 7. Constant to out of phase sediment input Constant to sinusoidally varying sediment input, on a background of sinusoidally changing subsidence. Sediment input curve is out of phase with subsidence curve.
Movie 8. Subsidence and sediment input phases If both sediment input and subsidence are changing through time, the stratal patterns will change as a function of the phase relationship between the two.
Movie 9. Static spill and fill Two linked minibasins with static fill-andspill: there is no subsidence and basin relief exists in both basins at the beginning of simulation. Red lines represent times of bypass; blue lines are condensed sections.
Movie 10. Dynamic fill and spill Two linked minibasins with dynamic filland-spill: subsidence is taking place during sedimentation in both basins; otherwise the parameters are the same as in movie #9. Red lines represent times of bypass; blue lines are condensed sections.
