Description: The shoreline–shelf setting includes a complex array of sedimentary systems (coastal-deltaic, paralic and shallow marine), which are influenced by dynamic interactions between physiography, sediment supply, biology, and depositional processes, amongst other factors. The shoreline–shelf transect is defined by the location, geometry and nature of critical transition zones, e.g. the fluvial-marine transition zone (FMTZ) and shelf-edge rollover zone (SERZ). Within these transition zones, major changes in sediment transport and depositional processes occur. Across and between these zones, studies have recognised the complexities in the preserved stratigraphic record and the impact of climatic and physiographic controls. However, many challenges remain for understanding shoreline–shelf settings e.g. 1) the distribution of facies, ichnofacies and architecture in mixed-process systems; 2) understanding process interaction and sedimentary preservation across a broader range of physiographic settings; and 3) constraining the along-strike and down-dip variability in resulting stratigraphic architecture. Therefore, in this session we invite contributions from modern, ancient and numerical modelling studies of shoreline–shelfal depositional environments to consolidate and improve our understanding of the complex interaction of numerous factors in this segment of source-to-sink systems.

How to access SSP3.7
Session SSP3.7 runs as a vPICO session. Everybody, conveners/chair/speakers as well as attendees, join the live session page on EGU21. While attendees stay on this live session page and see the live presentations via stream, you as convener/chair/speaker are required to enter the BigBlueButton (BBB) live video chat to give your presentation.
Please keep the live session page open on this browser tab and join the BBB video chat in parallel on another browser tab through the button below. Your personal breakout text chat following the live presentations are linked from the live session page tab, not from the additional BBB video chat tab.Enter BBB video chat
