Abstract:

The long-term objective within the STRATAFORM research program is to investigate the processes that lead to the genesis, modification, and burial of fine-scale stratification in continental shelf sediments. The approach is to a sample the continental shelf immediately after events and at closely spaced intervals thereafter, to monitor the shorter term months to years changes that modify the distribution and character of event layers and b examine the preserved stratigraphy in the upper few meters of the seabed to examine the characteristics and fate of event layers over the longer term 10 - 1,000 years.
