Abstract:

The overall goal of the ONR STRATAFORM program is to advance our understanding of the formation of stratigraphic sequences on continental shelves and slopes. The primary objectives of this project are to conduct observations to determine the mechanisms of cross-shore sediment transport on the Eel river shelf and to relate the transport to the source of sediments in the Eel river plume.
