An outgrowth of the 2008 AAPG Hedberg Conference on Sediment Transfer from Shelf to Deep Water, Studies in Geology 61 was designed specifically to explore the growing interest in hyperpycnal and associated flows and hyperpycnites as significant contributors to the deep-water sedimentary record.
The topic of hyperpycnal flows and their deposits, hyperpycnites, has recently emerged as the latest in a long list of hotly debated topics on deep-water sedimentary processes, environments, and deposits. This collection of chapters offers important new insights into the sediment delivery system to deep-marine waters.
