The Campos, Santos and Pelotas basins (offshore southern Brazil) have been investigated in terms of 2D seismo-stratigraphy and numerical basin analysis. The processes controlling accommodation space evolution from the shelf top to the continental rise (i.e. eustacy, subsidence and sediment input) are discussed, and the evolution of the different basins is compared. Main results include: (i) classification of depositional seismic sequences from the syn-rift Barremian to the drift Holocene basin fill; (ii) numerical modeling of the subsidence/uplift history; (iii) forward stratigraphic simulation and quantification of erosion, transport and deposition rates regarding the basin-specific hydrocarbon potential
