A study of more than 100 sediment cores from the Arctic Ocean reveals that turbidity current deposits comprise about 27 percent of the cored sediments in the northeast and southeast parts of the Canada Abyssal Plain. The most common sedimentary structures in the Canada Abyssal Plain turbidites include the plane-parallel laminated Bouma B or D sequences, ripple cross-laminated Bouma C sequences, massive Bouma A sequences, and some load deformation structures.
