    Meziadin Lake (34 km², 133 m maximum depth) is located on the east side of the Coast Mountains in northern British Columbia. Inflow from Strohn Creek is dominated by the nival flood, despite a glacier cover of 50.5 km² in the drainage basin. The nival flood generates turbid underflows in...

    The turbidity maximum zone (TMZ) is one of the most important regions in an estuary. However, the high concentration of suspended material makes it difficult to measure the partial pressure of CO ( pCO) in these regions. Therefore, very little data is available on the pCO levels in TMZs. To...

    During Late Pleistocene Heinrich events (H-events), distinct, decimetre- to centimetre-thick layers of ice-rafted debris (IRD) were deposited in the North Atlantic as Heinrich layers (H-layers). These layers are characterized by high detrital carbonate content, low foraminifera content, a high...

    Shoreline seining was completed in South Dakota monthly (May through October) during the day and night at Lake Kampeska (a basin with simple morphometry) in 1995 and 1997 and at Lake Enemy Swim (a complex basin) in 1996 and 1997. Within lake comparisons were made between median day and night...

    The Tapeats Sandstone is the lowest Cambrian layer in the Grand Canyon in Arizona. It has been interpreted as beach, estuarine, and shallow marine coarse sand deposits, representing the initial stages of a slow transgression over a highly weathered and eroded, pre-vegetated epicratonic surface....

    Submarine landslides or slumps may generate turbidity currents consisting of mixture of sediment and water. Large and fast-moving turbidity currents can incise and erode continental margins and cause damage to artificial structures such as telecommunication cables on the seafloor. In this study,...
