Size distribution of submarine landslides and its implication to tsunami hazard in Puerto Rico
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-06-13)
We have established for the first time a size frequency distribution for carbonate submarine slope failures. Using detailed bathymetry along the northern edge of the carbonate platform north of Puerto Rico, we show that ...
Character and distribution of exposed glaciodeltaic deposits off outer Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and their effects on hydrogeology and benthic habitats
Sea-bed outcrops of glaciodeltaic sediments were identified in four places east of Cape Cod, Massachusetts during seismic-reflection, multibeam bathymetric and backscatter, bottom photographic, and sediment sampling ...
Automated feature extraction and spatial organization of seafloor pockmarks, Belfast Bay, Maine, USA
(Elsevier B.V., 2010-08-20)
Seafloor pockmarks occur worldwide and may represent millions of m3 of continental shelf erosion, but few numerical analyses of their morphology and spatial distribution of pockmarks exist. We introduce a quantitative ...
Shallow stratigraphic control on pockmark distribution in north temperate estuaries
(Elsevier B.V., 2012-09-27)
Pockmark fields occur throughout northern North American temperate estuaries despite the absence of extensive thermogenic hydrocarbon deposits typically associated with pockmarks. In such settings, the origins of the gas ...
