The goal of this research is to develop greater understanding of the dynamics of fine-grained sediment and its role in the generation of sedimentary facies on the continental shelf. In particular, we seek greater understanding of the environmental processes that influence the degree of packaging of fine-grained sediment within flocs floc fraction, and the role of boundary shear stress in determining the change in sediment size and sorting that makes the sand-mud transition recognizable acoustically as well as lithologically.
