Seismic profile and amplitude map draped on time structure on top of the Kujung 1 carbonate platform. Channel relief, late-stage small buildups, and detrital deposits across the adjacent basin floor (i.e., calciturbidites) are shown.

Seismic reflection amplitude extraction from a stratal slice through A) early and B) late-stage Kujung 1 reef deposition showing long-lived channels crosscutting the reef. These channels formed early in the evolution of this reef and persisted through until the end of deposition.
