Information - SSP10 Modelling subaqueous gravity flow processes and their deposits
Subaqueous gravity flows are among the least understood sedimentary processes, although their importance in the sedimentary record is generally acknowledged and rising, and their deposits become increasingly important because of the vast hydrocarbon reserves discovered within them. A variety of approaches to better understand their mechanics of deposition has been taken in the last few decades, among which are laboratory experiments and numerical simulations. Together with studies of fossil and modern analogues, these efforts have helped to gain increasing insights into the flow dynamics and depositional mechanism of a wide spectrum of subaqueous gravity flows. In this session we would like to document recent advances in modelling such flows and their deposits, both in the laboratory as well as by computer simulations. We particularly welcome contributions that focus on combining such models with actual data such as outcrop or reservoir analogues and modern settings.
