Size sorting in marine muds: Processes, pitfalls, and prospects for paleoflow-speed proxies

Article English OPEN
McCave, I. N.; Hall, Ian Robert;

The basis for, and use of, fine grain size parameters for inference of paleoflow speeds is reviewed here. The basis resides in data on deposited sediment taken in conjunction with flow speed measurements in the field, experimental data on suspended sediment transport an... View more
