Although many small-scale features of deep-water deposits are clearly related to the processes of sedimentation, the relationship between process and large-scale properties is often less obvious. However, sediment properties and deposit architectu...

Detailed mapping of single-cycle seismic elements, located within 1.5 to 2.0 sec of the water bottom, help to constrain the interpretation of processes controlling initial growth of submarine channel sinuosity. Highly sinuous channels (i.e., sinuo...

The architectural framework of the Mauritanian continental slope is characterized by a complex mixture of gravity and bottom current deposits that modify the pelagic background sedimentation. Since the Neogene, the Mauritanian passive margin botto...

Tectonic activity creates sub-marine topography that influences the routing of turbidity currents, and sites of localized sediment deposition.

This dissertation advances our understanding of how turbidity currents interact with three-dimensional (3-D) minibasin topography and the resulting deposits that form.
