Weathering is a process that turns bedrock into smaller particles, called sediment or soil. Mechanical weathering includes pressure expansion, frost wedging, root wedging, and salt al weathering includes carbonic acid and hydrolysis, dissolution, and oxidation.

    The determination of time-equivalent elements within any given turbidite system is necessary for deciphering depositional processes and sequence stratigraphy as well as for comparison with different systems to develop reliable, predictive sedimentation models for both modern and ancient submarine fans and other types of turbidite by: His 40 years of process-oriented research covers ancient deep-sea to alluvial facies of Proterozoic to Cretaceous age, four Ocean Drilling Program campaigns including Amazon submarine fan, Quaternary sedimentology of the Labrador Sea, Santa Monica Basin, and the Black Sea region including dynamics of the saline gravity current that enters the.

Focus is chiefly on the principles that control fan sedimentation and the resultant morphology of fans deposited in various types of settings. Through the comparison of modern and ancient examples of deep-sea fan sedimentation, the authors hope to increase understanding of the principal characteristics of fans.

Abstract. A useful comparison of modern and ancient submarine fans can be based only on well-understood and thoroughly mapped systems.

Introduction. In this book, all marine domains extending seaward of the shelf break are considered as deep-sea. This domain represents % of the Earth's surface (the ocean in its entirety covers ×10 6 km 2 or % of the Earth's surface, including continental shelves).

From a stricter geological point of view, the oceanic domain would begin at the boundary between the high-density Cited by: @article{osti_, title = {Comparison of depositional elements of an ancient and a modern submarine fan complex: Early Pennsylvanian Jackfork and late Pleistocene Mississippi fans}, author = {Coleman, J.L.

The book is based upon an IAS meeting which focused attention on the situation at active plate margins, covering three major themes: the underlying mechanics and rates of relative sea-level change at active plate margins; the interaction of eustatic and tectonic processes at modern margins; recognition of the products in the sedimentary record.

Deep-water (below wave base) processes, although generally hidden from view, shape the sedimentary record of more than 65% of the Earth&#;s surface, including large parts of ancient mountain belts. This book aims to inform advanced-level undergraduate and Pages:. Topics include modern and ancient deep-water sedimentary environments, tectonic settings, and how basinal and extra-basinal processes generate the typical characteristics of basin slopes, submarine canyons, contourite mounds and drifts, submarine fans, basin floors and abyssal plains.
