Papers I’m Reading — March 2010

March 19, 2010

I still haven’t actually read everything I listed for last month …  but, here is this month’s installment in the papers I’m reading series anyway:

  • Henriksen, S., et al.,  in press, Relationships between shelf-edge trajectories and sediment dispersal along depositional dip and strike: a different approach to sequence stratigraphy: Basin Research, doi: 10.1111/j.1365-2117.2010.00463.x. [link]
  • Shirai, M., et al., in press, Depositional age and triggering event of turbidites in the western Kumano Trough, central Japan during the last ca. 100 years: Marine Geology, doi: 10.1016.j.margeo.2010.02.015. [link] — note: their main conclusion is that the vast majority of turbidite deposits can be tied to floods or storms; only one correlated to an earthquake
  • Ito, M., in press, Are coarse-grained sediment waves formed as downstream-migrating antidunes? Insight from an early Pleistocene submarine canyon on the Boso Peninsula, Japan: Sedimentary Geology, doi: 10.1016/j.sedgeo.2010.02.006. [link]
  • Tucker, G.E. and Bradley, D.N., 2010, Trouble with diffusion: Reassessing hillslope erosion laws with a particle-based model: JGR Earth Surface, doi: 10.1029/2009JF001264. [link]
  • Migeon, S., et al., in press, Lobe Construction and sand/mud segregation by turbidity currents and debris flows on the western Nile deep-sea fan (Eastern Mediterranean): Sedimentary Geology, doi: doi: 10.1016/j.sedgeo.2010.02.011. [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).

    The Tucker and Bradley paper looks quite interesting. Well, they all do, but the Tucker paper looks most relevant to land-based me.

    I haven’t read that one yet and, to be honest, it’s a bit out of my realm of expertise. But, I’m always trying to learn more!
