Papers I’m Reading — February 2010

February 24, 2010

I’m still in post-vacation catch-up mode so blogging is pretty light right now. I hope to get back to it relatively soon.

In the meantime, here is this month’s installment in the papers I’m reading series:

  • Barnard, P.L. and Warrick, J.A., in press, Dramatic beach and nearshore morphological changes due to extreme flooding at a wave-dominated river mouth: Marine Geology, doi: 10.1016/j.margeo.2010.01.018. [link]
  • Liu, J.T., et al., in press, Quantifying tidal signatures of the benthic nepheloid layer in Gaoping submarine canyon in southern Taiwan: Marine Geology, doi: 10.1016.j.margeo.2010.01.016. [link]
  • Bache, F., et al., in press, Evolution of rifted continental margins: The case of the Gulf of Lions (Western Mediterranean Basin): EPSL, doi: 10.1016/j.epsl.2010.02.001. [link]
  • Twichell, D.C., et al., in press, Partitioning of sediment on the shelf offshore of the Columbia River littoral cell: Marine Geology, doi: 10.1016/j.margeo.2010.02.001. [link]

The following two publications are part of a recent Discussion and Reply — if turbidites are your thing, these are a must-read:

  • Shanmugam, G., 2010, Discussion: “Turbidites and turbidity currents from Alpine flysch to the exploration of continental margin” by Mutti et al., (2009), Sedimentology, 56, 267-318: Sedimentology, doi: 10.1111/j.1365-3091.2009.01132.x. [link]
  • Mutti, E., et al., 2010, Reply to Discussion by G. Shanmugam on “Turbidites and turbidity currents from Alpine flysch to the exploration of continental margin” by Mutti et al., (2009), Sedimentology, 56, 267-318: Sedimentology, doi: 10.1111/j.1365-3091.2009.01131.x [link]

Note: the links above may take you to a subscription-only page; as a policy I do not e-mail PDF copies of papers to people (sorry).

    Whoa, didn’t Shanmugam et al. hash this stuff out like 15 years ago? And didn’t those papers generate several replies? I’ll have to look into these new ones.

    Matt … yeah, it makes me want to revisit the ’90s era back-and-forth discussions again. These Discussion and Replies can be a nice way to learn concepts — and entertaining to read too :)

    We did a field trip, so we got a chance to have the actual papers in-hand while standing on the very outcrops discussed.

    Thanks for those replies/discussions links, Shanmugam’s VS Mutti or Mulder is always funny to read…. ! :)
