Figure 8. Schematic dip section through slope fan along the basal part of a collapse fill. Reactivation of a growth fault has offset the collapse unconformity and caused reversal of regional basinward dip because of the greater subsidence rate downthrown to the fault. This can be a favorable position for the preservation of coarse sediment gravity flows, which would otherwise be bypassed into deeper water further down slope.
