Each tectonic setting within rift half-graben basins generates a predictable range of lithofacies architectures. Asymmetry in lithology and strata thickness is the result of lake-level fluctuations interacting with varying rates of sediment accumulation, much of which is structurally influenced. Differences in sequence geometry have implications not only for interpreting ancient rift-lake deposits but also for deposition of economically viable reservoir facies and their juxtaposition with source rocks and caprocks. -from Author
