The sequence of events around the epicentre of the 1929 Grand Banks earthquake: initiation of debris flows and turbidity current inferred from sidescan sonar
Continental slope sediment failures around the epicentre of the 1929 ‘Grand Banks’ earthquake have been imaged with the SAR (Systeme Acoustique Remorque) high-resolution, deep-towed sidescan sonarExpand
Dimensions and architecture of late Pleistocene submarine lobes off the northern margin of East Corsica
Sandy lobe deposits on submarine fans are sensitive recorders of the types of sediment gravity flows supplied to a basin and are economically important as hydrocarbon reservoirs. This studyExpand
A conceptual model of the deglaciation of Atlantic Canada
Abstract We present a conceptual model for the deglaciation of Atlantic Canada in which a role is played by ice streams. The ice margin lay close to the edge of the continental shelf at the lastExpand
Processes That Initiate Turbidity Currents and Their Influence on Turbidites: A Marine Geology Perspective
How the processes that initiate turbidity currents influence turbidite deposition is poorly understood, and many discussions in the literature rely on concepts that are overly simplistic. MarineExpand
WISCONSINAN GLACIAL AND SEA-LEVEL HISTORY OF MARITIME CANADA AND THE ADJACENT CONTINENTAL SHELF : A CORRELATION OF LAND AND SEA EVENTS
The Wisconsinan glacial history of Maritime Canada records the interaction of land-based glaciers with the sea, which dissects the region along the deep embayments of the Bay of Fundy and theExpand

Summary Based on a large amount of published data and stimulated by the papers and discussion at the International Workshop on Fine-Grained Sediments held in Halifax, Canada in August 1982, we haveExpand
Alternating marine and lacustrine sedimentation during late Quaternary in the Gulf of Corinth rift basin, central Greece
Abstract The Gulf of Corinth in central Greece has a maximum depth of about 900 m and is separated from the open sea by the Rion Strait, with a sill depth of 62 m marked by an extensive submarineExpand
Lake Agassiz outburst age and routing by Labrador Current and the 8.2 cal ka cold event
Abstract Catastrophic drainage of glacial Lake Agassiz, impounded by the Laurentide Ice Sheet (LIS), into Hudson Bay and Strait is widely thought to have caused the 8.2 cal ka cold event, though theExpand
Listric faulting, sedimentation, and morphological evolution of the Quaternary eastern Corinth rift, Greece: First stages of continental rifting
The 30-km-wide Corinth rift is one of a series of west-northwest-trending Quaternary grabens in western Greece. In the north, a major listric fault marks the southern edge of a deep asymmetric grabenExpand
Turbidite Depositional Patterns and Flow Characteristics, Navy Submarine Fan, California Borderland
The late Pleistocene and Holocene stratigraphy of Navy Fan is mapped in detail from more than 100 cores. Thirteen 14C dates of plant detritus and of organic-rich mud beds show that a marked change inExpand
