Abstract:

Our long term goal is to understand the interaction of fluid flow, gas migration and tectonics in the creation and modification of shelf and slope geomorphology and seafloor acoustic character. In addition, we are examining the interaction of tectonics, sediment accumulation and erosion in creating and modifying the morphology, stratal architecture and preservation potential of continental margins.
