The aim is to provide basic data required to characterize underlying chemical and physical processes and their rates which control the distributions, concentrations, and ultimate fate of some of the potentially hazardous agents associated with fossil fuel and nuclear power production or transportation.

Collectively, these results provide a significant advance in our understanding of the thermal structure of the Cascadia subduction zone and the fluid and methane sources feeding seeps along the upper continental slope Sediment transport on the northern Oregon continental shelf book the Washington-sector of the Cascadia margin.

The character of the shelf changes dramatically at the shelf break, where the continental slope begins. Ogston Shaping of continental slopes by internal tides, Science The continuity of transport, however, is interrupted by topographic highs which are barriers or inhibitors to sediment transport created by wrench-style tectonics associated with the San Andreas fault system.

Allison, M. For these longer periods the longshelf flow was coherent with wind stress, which implies that winds were a mojor driving force of the longshelf current.

Available data has been used to illustrate the value and the limitations of the model for predictions of density and current structure off Washington. The recent increase in extreme storm events within the region with the warming of Atlantic sea-surface temperatures suggests that the shelf experiences wave conditions on decadal or longer timescales capable of entraining and transporting sediment on the seafloor of the inner- and mid-shelf.

Both the clay assemblages and the sediment supply estimates indicate that the rivers of the northern California Coast Range, the Klamath Mountains and the Columbia Watershed are the principal sediment suppliers, providing over 90 percent of the silts and clays to the Oregon margin and Cascadia Basin.

A continental shelf is a portion of a continent that is submerged under an area of relatively shallow water known as a shelf sea. Much of these shelves has been exposed during glacial periods and interglacial galisend.com shelf surrounding an island is known as an insular shelf.

The continental margin, between the continental shelf and the abyssal plain, comprises a steep continental slope. Sediment transport and the potential for erosion or deposition have been investigated on the Palos Verdes (PV) and San Pedro shelves in southern California to help assess the fate of an effluent.Variations in Sediment Texture on the Northern Monterey Pdf National Marine Sanctuary Continental Shelf.
