Research along the eastern margin of Mexico, southern Gulf of Mexico is done in partnership with IMP and PEMEX. It is a spectacular data set of nearly 10,000 square kilometers that images the entire margin of eastern Mexico offshore. It's phased history of progradation, aggradation, retrogradation and oversteepening allows linkages to downslope sediments and facies associated with these classes of margin geometry.
