  Information - GM8 Submarine erosion (co-listed in NH, OS & SSP)

Event Information
A significant effort of marine geology and geophysics has been directed
to addressing the origins and processes involved in slope failure and
sedimentary flows in sculpting submarine topography. As a result, the
continental and other slopes in many areas have been well characterized
with sonar, seismic and coring datasets. These data and our improved
understanding of process now prompt the question of whether a more
holistic understanding of submarine erosion can emerge, as in subaerial
geomorphology where knowledge of stream bed and other erosion process is
used to explain the wider form of the landscape and its controls. This
session seeks contributions that address aspects of submarine erosion by
turbidity currents, debris flows, slides and oceanographic currents from
observations and modelling. The scope of the session will be broad and
encompass both erosion within channels and open-slope erosion by
oceanographic currents.
