Basin Research is an international geosciences journal dedicated to publishing ground-breaking research papers on sedimentary basin systems, encouraging manuscripts that go beyond single-discipline topics of sedimentology, structural geology, and geophysics. Its goal is to foster knowledge exchange and collaboration among earth scientists from various disciplines, unlocking the mysteries of sedimentary basin systems to expand our understanding of the Earth's dynamic processes.

Strike‐slip fault zone architecture and its effect on fluid migration in deep‐seated strata: Insights from the Central Tarim Basin

  •  13 May 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

The fault zone architecture of strike-slip faults can vary. Based on comprehensive studies in deep-seated carbonate strata, three fault zone models were created and the various roles of fault zone components were discussed. According to our findings, the releasing bends are a better location for fluid migration and buildup.

Quantification of sediment fluxes and intermittencies from Oligo–Miocene megafan deposits in the Swiss Molasse basin

  •  23 April 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

This study investigates how three palaeo-depositional systems situated in the Swiss Molasse basin (North to the Central European Alps; details in Fig. 1) record the tecto-geomorphic and climatic boundary conditions of the source area through Oligo-Miocene times. The granulometric properties of the conglomerates at these palaeo-fan systems, paired with information on the spatial distribution of accommodation space, are used to infer the activity – or intermittency – of these dispersal systems and provide information on the long-term sediment budgets.
