Tidal deposition systems of China's continental shelf, with special reference to the eastern Bohai Sea
Abstract The continental shelf of China has undergone a large-scale marine transgression. Tidal currents have become the main active agent and have had a profound influence on the deposition andExpand

Heinrich event imprints in the Okinawa Trough: evidence from oxygen isotope and planktonic foraminifera
Planktonic foraminiferal faunas, oxygen isotope and modern analog technique sea surface temperature records were obtained in piston core DGKS9603 (28degrees08.869'N, 127degrees16.238'E, water depthExpand

Pleistocene forced regressions and tidal sand ridges in the East China Sea
Abstract Tidal sand ridges are common features on modern shelves but only few examples of such preserved sand bodies are described in Pleistocene deposits. In the stratigraphic record, some sandExpand

Sedimentary sequences in the Gulf of Lion: A record of 100,000 years climatic cycles
Abstract The wide continental shelf of the Gulf of Lion (up to 70 km) has been the object of numerous investigations since the early days of oceanography. Yet, the question of sequences duration, theExpand

Erosional Offshore Sand Ridges and Lowstand Shorefaces: Examples from Tide- and Wave-Dominated Environments of France
ABSTRACT Offshore sand bodies are described from many continental shelves in the world, as well as in the stratigraphic record, where they commonly are productive reservoirs. Some of these ancientExpand

Paleo sea levels reconsidered from direct observation of paleoshoreline position during glacial maxima (for the last 500,000 yr)
The drastic climatic changes which characterise the cooling trend of the last few million years of Earth history led to variations in eustatic sea level that had tremendous impact on the geology andExpand

Sand bodies at the shelf edge in the Gulf of Lions (Western Mediterranean): Deglacial history and modern processes
Abstract The outer continental shelf of the Gulf of Lions is covered by thick, mainly regressive, sand deposits. A combination of seismic, sedimentological and geochronological methods allows us toExpand

Past and present sedimentary activity in the Capbreton Canyon, southern Bay of Biscay
Located in the south-eastern part of the Bay of Biscay, the Capbreton Canyon incises the continental shelf up to the 30 m isobath contour, and acts as a natural conduit for continental andExpand

Provenance discrimination of siliciclastic sediments in the middle Okinawa Trough since 30 ka: Constraints from rare earth element compositions
The late Quaternary paleoceanography and paleoenvironment in the Okinawa Trough, East China Sea, have been well reconstructed over the last decade, while in contrast the provenance of terrigenousExpand

Plio–Quaternary prograding clinoform wedges of the western Gulf of Lion continental margin (NW Mediterranean) after the Messinian Salinity Crisis
In contrast to the much-studied onshore and deep offshore post-Messinian sedimentary history of the Gulf of Lion, the continental shelf had been poorly explored until recently. New seismic data,Expand
