Moreover, the addition of new sediments in abyssal plains
depends on the gradual rain of particles from the sea surface.
In 2007, a total of 6900 km of seismic data were collected over the Sohm Abyssal Plain
The flat abyssal plains
of soft silt haven't managed to avoid cable troubles either.
The thick turbidite sequences on the Mississippi and Bengal submarine fans and other abyssal plains
drilled by the Deep Sea Drilling Program and the Ocean Drilling Program are in areas underlain by oceanic crust.
The northern Newfoundland Basin (NB) is the conjugate to the Iberia Abyssal Plain
There are just five manned submarines in the world that can reach the abyssal plain
and less than one per cent of it has been explored.
The 800 km cable loop west of Vancouver Island connects five nodes in coastal, continental slope, abyssal plain
and spreading-ridge environments.
3 mm, taken by a 25-foot otter trawl on an abyssal plain
off Baja California, Mexico (31[degrees]20'N, 120[degrees]8'W), 3707-3806 m, 23 March 1970, R/V Melville, SIO sta.
Down on the Abyssal Plain
, visibility is so bad, and mating therefore so difficult, that one male - taking no chances - sticks himself to the female so that they are, literally, glued at the hip.
The islands are perched at the ragged edge of the continental shelf, right before it plunges more than 2 miles down to the abyssal plain
And they also had high activity, meaning that more carbon is turned over by bacteria in the trenches than is turned over at 6,000m of depth in the abyssal plain
The recent paper covers two time-series studies- one at "Station M," about 220 kilometers off the Central California coast, and a second on the Porcupine Abyssal Plain
, several hundred kilometers southwest of Ireland.
when a small part of Gondwana broke away to the north in the late Jurassic and the Argo abyssal plain
formed from upwelling basalt behind the departing fragment,
To oceanic type is represented by those parts of the earth crust, which correspond to deep water abyssal plains
in planetary relief, mid-ocean ridges and deep water hollows.
After 15 years of researching deep-ocean sedimentation, Orrin Pilkey realized that at cocktail parties people would listen more attentively when he talked about coastal erosion, hurricanes, and shoreline processes than about turbidity currents and abyssal plains
