The laboratory work to the dynamics of turbidity currents, outlined in this volume, is the first experimental investigation of the nature of downslape gravity-driven currents of suspended sediments which are reflected/ deflected against obstacles such as seamounts oceanfloor slopes. Scientists and researchers working on the interpretation and understanding of features occurring in sequence stratigraphic sections will find useful clues.
