Large-scale morphology of Arctic continental slopes: the influence of sediment delivery on slope form / Damian B. O'Grady, James P.M. Syvitski.

Title: Large-scale morphology of Arctic continental slopes: the influence of sediment delivery on slope form / Damian B. O'Grady, James P.M. Syvitski.
Author(s): O'Grady, Damian B.
Syvitski, James P. M.
Date: 2002.
Publisher: London: Geological Society
In: Glacier-influenced sedimentation on high-latitude continental margins. (2002.),
Abstract: Seeks systematic relationship between glacial processes and continental slope morphology for entire range of northern high-latitude margins. Compares large-scale morphology for several Arctic regions covering broad spectrum of glacial to non-glacial sedimentary environments. Identifies continental slope and measures slope and roughness using GIS and International Bathymetric Chart of the Arctic Ocean. Notes that slopes on margins characterized by convergent (ice-stream) flow and higher sediment input dip more gently than those characterized by divergent ice flow and lower input. Proposes model for trough-mouth fan development that relates fan's geomorphic state to its stratigraphic development.
