Abstract:

This work concentrated on interpreting ocean-floor geomorphology, especially by fine-scale studies of sites where relief is being actively created or modified, by tectonism and volcanism e.g. at plate boundaries and young seamounts or by bottom current activity. An important focus of the latter aspect was to learn how to use deep-sea bedforms the clearest evidence of geologically effective bottom currents to infer characteristics of the forcing flow and the benthic boundary layer, as well as for delineating rates and routes of sediment transport.
