Distribution and association of sediment gravity flow deposits and glacial/ glacial-marine sediments around the continental margin of Antarctica



Distribution and association of sediment gravity flow deposits and glacial/ glacial-marine sediments around the continental margin of Antarctica



Pages 265-300 1983



Marine resedimentation processes, in particular processes involving sediment mass movement, play a key role in determining the ultimate facies associations found in the glacial-marine environment of the Antarctic. This paper discusses the known distribution of sediment gravity flow deposits (as recognized from DSDP data, piston or Phleger core coverage, and from echo-sounding techniques) around the Antarctic continental margin, with particular emphasis upon the association of these mass transport deposits with glacial and glacial-marine sediments.
