Submarine canyons, channels, levees, and lobes: an investigation of the linkages between depositional processes, stratigraphy, and sedimentology
Continental margin depositional systems are of great importance to science and society in that their deposits are an important record of earth history and host valuable natural resources. Submarine fans form the largest sedimentary accumulations within continental margins and are comprised of the deposits from several distinct depositional environments, including canyons, channels, levees, and lobes. Understating how sedimentary processes affect the stratigraphy and sedimentary properties of these deposits is critical to properly interpret them for use in deciphering global events of the past ...
