Deep Marine Systems: Processes, Deposits, Environments, by Kevin T. Pickering,Richard N. Hiscott

By Kevin T. Pickering,Richard N. Hiscott

Deep-water (below wave base) approaches, even if often hidden from view, form the sedimentary checklist of greater than sixty five% of the Earth’s floor, together with huge components of historical mountain belts. This publication goals to notify advanced-level undergraduate and postgraduate scholars, Earth scientists with pursuits in actual oceanography and hydrocarbon exploration and construction, approximately some of the vital actual elements of deep-water (mainly deep-marine) structures. The authors give some thought to shipping and deposition within the deep sea, trace-fossil assemblages, and facies stacking styles as an archive of the underlying controls on deposit structure (e.g., seismicity, weather swap, autocyclicity). themes contain smooth and old deep-water sedimentary environments, tectonic settings, and the way basinal and extra-basinal procedures generate  the common features of basin slopes, submarine canyons, contourite mounds and drifts, submarine fanatics, basin flooring and abyssal plains.
