This is the first gallery of sedimentary structures of deepwater systems and includes outcrops of Permian sediments from the Delaware Basin of West Texas and New Mexico, the Canning Basin, the Devonian and Mississippian of the Appalachians and the Upper Carboniferous of the Shannon basin in Co Clare in Ireland.
This section focuses on broader generalities of the slope margin, submarine fans and the channels that feed them.
Unless otherwise stated many of the photographs below are from Christopher Kendall and Peter Haughton. A number of the images have been grabbed from the web, placed there by generous geologists and utilized with acknowledgement to them where data is available on the photographer. If we missed acknowledgement to you or you have something better you would prefer placed here, please let us know.
