THE SEDIMENTOLOGY OF BOTTOM CURRENT PROCESSES AND THEIR BEDFORMS
This doctoral thesis (this work) is aimed at better understanding ocean bottom current processes and their bedforms in the contexts of 1) ancient outcrops, 2) modern oceans and 3) geophysical bedform processes. First, Miocene Rifian Corridor deposits in Northern Morocco are described, which have been interpreted to have formed under the action of ocean bottom currents. The independent paleontological, sedimentary, and stratigraphic analysis presented in this work shows that these deposits have likely been misinterpreted and actually represent shallow marine tide-dominated delta deposits.
