The morphology and structure of a large submarine slump (Agulhas Slump) on the sheared continental margin off SE Africa are described from bathymetric and continuous seismic reflection records. It is a composite feature consisting of proximal and distal allochthonous sediment masses separated by a large glide plane scar. The locations of the various structural elements of the slump are related to underlying features: in the head region these are controlled by large-scale Cretaceous and…
