    Turbidites provide a good summary of the ideas we have been talking about, e.g. facies and sedimentary structures related to flows. Turbidites are deposited from slurries of sediment and water in any standing body of water (lakes, oceans). (photos of turbidites) Turbidity flows start with slope failure in soft sediment.   The MTS consists of three interconnected deep‐water basins, the Seine Abyssal Plain (SAP), the Agadir Basin and the Madeira Abyssal Plain (MAP), connected by a network of distributary channels. Excellent core control has enabled individual turbidites to be correlated between all three basins, giving a detailed insight into the turbidite.

    The understanding of deep-water depositional systems has advanced sig-nificantly in recent years. In the past, much understanding of deep-water sedimentation came from studies of outcrops, recent fan systems, and 2D reflection seismic data (Bouma ; Mutti and Ricci Lucchi ; Nor-.   The shelf staging area is connected to the deep-water environment through slope cannels and/or canyons. Main depositional elements in the deep water include leveed channel, crevasse splays, sediment waves, and frontal splays or lobes. Note that no mention is made to bottom currents and their deposits.

Turbidites are the deposits of turbidity currents, which are gravity-driven turbid suspensions of fluid (usually water) and sediment.

They form a class of subaqueous sediment gravity flow (see Gravity-Driven Mass Flows) in which the suspended sediment is supported during transport largely or wholly by fluid ites range in grain-size from mud to gravel, and may be of any.

Introduction to deepwater system sediments and their classification Miall’s () statement that "At the very least, classifications represent way stations on the road to perfect understanding; at best, they offer a common language for description and interpretation" is a mantra to the sections below that describe and classify deepwater sediments and the models that explain their deposition.

Although the definition may sound a bit loose, a good identification of depositional elements of deep-water systems (turbidite or not) is the key to a good reservoir description, and deep-water elements will be described in detail in Section View chapter Purchase book Deepwater Geology & Geoscience Peter Aird, in Deepwater Drilling, Turbidites have been one of the better known and most intensively studied deep-water sediment facies since they were first recognised in the s and the first facies model was developed in.

They are now very well known from sediment cores recovered from modern deep-water systems, subsurface (hydrocarbon) boreholes and ancient outcrops exposed on land.

The geologic deposit of a turbidity current. Turbidites are deposited in the deep ocean troughs below the continental shelf, or similar structures in deep lakes, by underwater avalanches which slide down the steep slopes of the continental shelf edge.

When the material comes to rest in the ocean trough, it is the sand and other coarse material which settles first followed by mud and eventually the very fine. PDF | On Jan 1,G. Shanmugam published Fine-grained turbidite systems (eds) A.H.
