The Neogene and Quaternary sediments of the Faeroe-Shetland Channel and West Shetland shelf and slope rest upon a major regional unconformity, the Latest Oligocene Unconformity (LOU), and have been deposited through the interaction of downslope and parallel-to-slope depositional processes. The upper to middle continental slope is dominated by mass-transport deposits (debris flows), which progressively diminish downslope, and were largely generated and deposited during glacial cycles when ice… 
Neogene sediment structures in Bounty Trough, eastern New Zealand: influence of magmatic and oceanic current activity
New seismic reflection profiles have been interpreted to shed more light on the Neogene deposition in Bounty Trough, an aborted rift characterizing the eastern New Zealand continental margin. Two
Aseismic controls on in situ soft‐sediment deformation processes and products in submarine slope deposits of the Karoo Basin, South Africa
Intervals of soft‐sediment deformation features, including vertical fluid escape and load structures, are common and well‐exposed in Permian lower slope deposits of the Tanqua Depocentre, Karoo
Occurrence of submarine canyons, sediment waves and mass movements along the northern continental slope of the South China Sea
In this study, we reveal a series of newly discovered submarine canyons, sediment waves, and mass movements on a flat and smooth seafloor using high-resolution, multi-beam bathymetry and shallow
Cenozoic contourite drifts and palaeoceanographic development of the Faeroe Shetland Basin
This thesis investigated the palaeoceanographic history of the Faeroe Shetland Basin, NE Atlantic, via identification and analysis of contourite drift deposits using petroleum industry seismic and
