Prodigious submarine landslides on the Hawaiian Ridge
The extensive area covered by major submarine mass wasting deposits on or near the Hawaiian Ridge has been delimited by systematic mapping of the Hawaiian exclusive economic zone using theExpand
Comparing Examples of Modern and Ancient Turbidite Systems: Problems and Concepts
A useful comparison of modern and ancient submarine fans can be based only on well-understood and thoroughly mapped systems. In addition, the examples selected for comparison must representExpand
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
Channel formation by flow stripping: large‐scale scour features along the Monterey East Channel and their relation to sediment waves
The Monterey East system is formed by large-scale sediment waves deposited as a result of flows stripped from the deeply incised Monterey fan valley (Monterey Channel) at the apex of the ShepardExpand
Tosco-Abreojos fault zone: A Neogene transform plate boundary within the Pacific margin of southern Baja California, Mexico
Single-channel seismic-reflection profiles across the Pacific margin of southern Baja California show a series of northwest-trending ridges, troughs, and faults. The most significant feature is aExpand
Growth Patterns of Deep-Sea Fans
The growth pattern of a deep-sea fan relates events in and around the fan-valleys to the structure and morphology of the open fan. The growth pattern cannot be determined without knowledge of theExpand
The Giant Submarine Alika Debris Slide, Mauna Loa, Hawaii
probably represent multiple subsidence events before, during, and after the debris avalanches. Lower slopes of the slide contain distinctive lobate-terraced deposits that are interpreted as havingExpand
Fan Valleys, Channels, and Depositional Lobes on Modern Submarine Fans: Characters for Recognition of Sandy Turbidite Environments
The growth-pattern concept for modern submarine fans has been reviewed and broadened by additional data published or obtained in the last five years. The similarities in morphology, structure, andExpand
Turbidite systems: State of the art and future directions
The study of turbidite systems covering a wide range of physical scales has led to confusion regarding the use of certain key terms and hence a breakdown in communication between workers involved inExpand
