Seismic geomorphology of buried channel systems on the New Jersey outer shelf: assessing past environmental conditions


Quantitative geomorphologic analysis of shallowly buried, dendritic channel systems on the New Jersey shelf provides estimates of paleo-hydrologic parameters needed to link channel morphology to the former hydrodynamic setting. These channels, observed in 1–4 kHz deep-towed chirp seismic data, formed presumably as fluvial systems when the shelf was exposed… (More)
