Deep-water deposits consisting mainly of massive sand are commonly identified as deposits of turbidity currents (i.e., turbidites). Speculation has risen in recent years as to whether some of these massive sandy deposits could have instead been deposited by debris flows. This possibility is explored here by examining the flow mechanics of sand-rich subaqueous gravity flows by means of laboratory experiments. In these experiments, sandy gravity flows were generated when well-mixed slurries of… Expand
