Abstract Continental shelves are the key interfaces between terrestrial sediment source areas and deep-sea depositional systems, promoting the transfer of sediment across continental margins. Work on shelves in the context of entire continental-margin sediment-routing systems has focused on their importance as capacitors of sediment during several to tens of thousands of years of post-glacial shoreline transgression and sea-level highstand. We demonstrate that the tectonically active Oceanside… CONTINUE READING
