  The period when prograding seems to be most active, was a time when extensive bed s of phosphorite were also deposited along the continental margin of the east coast of the U.S., in particular in northern Florida (Riggs, ) indicating a local increase in the nutrient content of the waters. This was the time when the largest shark ever (over. In the east faults of a continental hinge line offset continental blocks up to a kilometer.

East of the Pelagian Shelf the geology of the continental margin changes dramatically. The shallow shelf is replaced in the Gulf of Sirt by a typical continental margin of slope and rise. In effect, the offshore Gulf of Sirt is divided into two provinces by the Sabratah-Cyrenaica Fault Zone (Figure ). The area south of the fault is a.
