Abstract:

To understand the mechanics of small-scale sediment-fluid interactions and how these processes affect transport and deposition of terrestrial material on active continental margins. Convective sedimentation CS and preferential concentration PC are two newly formulated processes that have the potential to change the way we think about delivery of riverine material to the continental shelf and beyond.
