Abstract:

The growth pattern of a deep-sea fan relates events occurring in and around the fan-valleys to the structure and morphology of the open fan. The growth pattern cannot be determined without knowing the origin and recent history of the fan-valley system. The mapping of La Jolla and San Lucas deep-sea fans with the deep-towed instrument package developed at Marine Physical Laboratory of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography details the fine-scale morphology, structure, and internal fill of the fan-valleys and attempts to define the growth patterns of these fans.
