Don’t just write down answers from the back of the text. These are there to help guide you. Add some description. For example, in problem i) you are requested to come up with an expression that will give sediment thickness immediately following rifting. The answer in the text is given as max 0 ) e = = max (1 1) = =0. Note that at the instant rifting occurs there is no basin to fill. The thickness should be zero. What do the results tell you as a geologist or from a common sense point of view? 8.14 Text Problem In problem 8.14 Waltham asks us to consider salinity variations within a barred basin. The relationship, 0 /( ), ssX Xx αα = defines salinity (s) as a function of distance from the ocean inlet (x). α
