Three closely spaced sites located 800 km south of Sri Lanka on the distal Bengal Fan were drilled during ODP Leg 116. Two of these sites, 717 and 718, together penetrated over 1300 of the 2000 m of stratigraphic section present at that location and provide a complete record of sedimentation since the lower Miocene. The entire section consists of turbidites, primarily derived from the Ganges-Brahmaputra delta. The main controls on sedimentation appear to be the uplift and erosion history of the… CONTINUE READING
