Abstract:

Our long term goal is to understand the role of fluid flow and gas migration 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.
