Finding order in chaos -- a multi scale study of mass-transport deposits
Even in chaos, there is a pinch of order. This research compiles the research collaborations investigating deposits from siliciclastic submarine failures—also known as mass transport complexes (MTCs) or deposits (MTDs)—using multi-scale methodologies and datasets including outcrops, cores, and seismic data. Although these deposits are chaotic by nature, detailed outcrop studies reveal a scale-independent degree of order. It is now widely recognized that such deposits are ubiquitous stratigraphic components in ancient and modern deepwater basins. Nevertheless, when compared to other deposits ...
