Processes, Deposits, Environments, Tectonics and Sedimentation

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 postgraduate students, and professional Earth
scientists with interests in physical oceanography and hydrocarbon
exploration and production, about many of the important physical
aspects of deep-water (mainly deep-marine) systems. The authors
consider transport and deposition in the deep sea, trace-fossil
assemblages, and facies stacking patterns as an archive of the
underlying controls on deposit architecture (e.g., seismicity,
climate change, autocyclicity). 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.
