Abstract. The effects of changes in slope gradient on deposition processes and architecture have been investigated in different deep-sea systems both in modern and ancient environments. However, the impact of subtle gradient changes (Author: Salomé Mignard, Thierry Mulder, Philippe Martinez, Thierry Garlan. These values are in the range of volumetric fluxes measured in the Central Nile Deep-Sea Fan in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea [76], the Kerch seep area in the northeastern Black Sea [79], and the convergent Makran continental margin [78].

The Cretaceous Afikpo sedimentary Basin in Southeastern Nigeria contains rocks of fluvial, deltaic and shallow marine origin. This study examines the role of sedimentary processes in sediment distribution in the various geologic environments. The outcrop sections and the Afikpo River were studied by visual observation and photographing of important features during a field mapping : Prince Suka Momta.

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.

/ DELTAIC SEDIMENTATION: MODERN AND ANCIENT, Tulsa,cl, pages, new, $ Abyssal fans, also known as deep-sea fans, underwater deltas, and submarine fans, are underwater geological structures associated with large-scale sediment deposition and formed by turbidity can be thought of as an underwater version of alluvial fans and can vary dramatically in size, with widths from several kilometres to several thousands of kilometres The largest is the Bengal.

Abstract. A useful comparison of modern and ancient submarine fans can be based only on well-understood and thoroughly mapped systems. In addition, the examples selected for comparison must represent depositional systems similar in such characteristics as type of basin, size of sediment source, physical and temporal scales, and stage of by: 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.

A review of previous work on modern and ancient deep-water facies, processes and models is presented with a new classification scheme involving 40 distinct facies related to 15 conceptually distinct facies groups. These facies are fixed points in a spectrum of facies generated in a process continuum from resedimentation processes, through semi Cited by:   An interesting children's book that follows the adventures of a penguin that wants to know how deep is the sea.
