Abstract Under the prevailing turbidite paradigm, the term turbidite (i.e., deposits of turbidity currents with Newtonian rheology and turbulent state) is used very loosely and is commonly applied to deposits of debris flows with plastic rheology and laminar state. For example, because high-density turbidity currents are defined on the basis of three different concepts (i.e., flow density, grain size, and driving force), there are no consistent criteria for recognition of their deposits.
