Hybrid sediment gravity flow deposits – Classification, origin and significance
The deposits of subaqueous sediment gravity flows can show evidence for abrupt and/or progressive changes in flow behaviour making them hard to ascribe to a single flow type (e.g. turbidity currents,Expand

"Linked" debrites in sand-rich turbidite systems - origin and significance
Abstract The outer parts of a number of small Late Jurassic sandy deep-water fans in the northern North Sea are dominated by the stacked deposits of co-genetic sandy and muddy gravity flows.Expand

Velocity structure, turbulence and fluid stresses in experimental gravity currents
Gravity currents are of considerable environmental and industrial importance as hazards and as agents of sediment transport, and the deposits of ancient turbidity currents form some significantlyExpand

Depositional effects of flow nonuniformity and stratification within turbidity currents approaching a bounding slope; deflection, reflection, and facies variation
ABSTRACT The flow of turbidity currents and pyroclastic flows into regions with topography produces spatial variation in flow. This variation (the flow nonuniformity) affects not only the loci ofExpand

Process controls on the development of stratigraphic trap potential on the margins of confined turbidite systems and aids to reservoir evaluation
Stratigraphic trapping at pinch-out margins is a key feature of many turbidite-hosted hydrocarbon reservoirs. In systems confined by lateral or oblique frontal slopes, outcrop studies show that thereExpand

Facies architecture of the Grès de Peïra Cava, SE France: landward stacking patterns in ponded turbiditic basins
Basins in which turbidity currents are completely or partially trapped are common in many tectonically active, deep-water settings. Field study of an Eocene–Oligocene turbiditic system in the PeïraExpand

The influence of a lateral basin-slope on the depositional patterns of natural and experimental turbidity currents
Abstract Understanding topographic effects upon the depositional processes of turbidity currents and the resulting deposit characteristics is key to producing reliable depositional models forExpand

Character and distribution of hybrid sediment gravity flow deposits from the outer Forties Fan, Palaeocene Central North Sea, UKCS
Abstract Seven categories of event bed (1–7) are recognised in cores from hydrocarbon fields in the outer part of the Palaeocene Forties Fan, a large mixed sand-mud, deep-water fan system in the UKExpand

Coupling between suspended sediment distribution and turbulence structure in a laboratory turbidity current
[1] A detailed laboratory experiment reveals the coupling between flow and suspended sediment properties (velocity, turbulence, concentration, and granulometry) in a low-density, depositionalExpand

The vertical turbulence structure of experimental turbidity currents encountering basal obstructions: implications for vertical suspended sediment distribution in non‐equilibrium currents
Large roughness features, caused by erosion of the sea floor, are commonly observed on the modern sea floor and beneath turbidite sandstone beds in outcrop. This paper aims to investigate theExpand
