The northwestern edge of Cascadia Basin (North Pacific Ocean) is unusual because late Pliocene to Holocene turbidites lap onto juvenile oceanic crust of the Juan de Fuca Ridge. Subsidence of the ridge flank combines with irregular westward progradation of the turbidite facies to create a stratigraphic section that coarsens and thickens upward. The sand provenance is mixed. Individual turbidity currents have funneled into the area through several shelf–slope and abyssalfloor conduits, including… CONTINUE READING
