    Baltimore Canyon Trough is the deepest depocenter for Mesozoic and Cenozoic sedimentary rocks along the U.S. Atlantic continental margin, with up to 18 km deposited beneath the continental shelf off New Jersey (Figs. 1,2, and 3).   The continental slope opposite displays geomorphic features generated by tectonic erosion [von Huene et al., ], local reentries at the slope toe where seamounts have collided with the margin, slope grooves along seamount subduction paths, and rotational slumps.

The nearly complete coverage of the U.S. Atlantic continental slope and rise by multibeam bathymetry and backscatter imagery provides an opportunity to reevaluate the distribution of submarine landslides along the margin and reassess the controls on their formation.

Landslides can be divided into two categories based on their source areas. The continental margin is one of the three major zones of the ocean floor, the other two being deep-ocean basins and mid-ocean continental margin is the shallow water area found in proximity to continents.

The continental margin consists of three different features: the continental rise, the continental slope, and the continental shelf. the U.S. Atlantic continental slope and rise by multibeam bathymetry provides a more uniform and detailed view of the geomorphology of submarine landslides than has been previously available.

Although coverage is excellent, several significant gaps within the dataset totaling an area of approximat km2 (~8% of the total area). If you could walk out away from shore across the sea floor on a passive continental margin, what is the order of provinces you would cross.

The landscape underwater is spectacular meanwhile explorable. One of the features cannot be found on solid ground is submarine canyon. Submarine canyon is File Size: KB. A continental margin that has a broad continental shelf, a gentle continental slope, and a pronounced continental rise is known as a passive continental margin.

This type of margin experiences little, if any, volcanic or earthquake activity. The build-up of sediment is the primary activity affecting a passive margin. Submarine fans are complex morphological features that develop on the continental slope, rise and abyssal plain, normally at the mouths of submarine canyons.

They are constructed principally from the deposits of sediment gravity flows (mainly turbidity currents and debris flows) as terrigenous and shallow marine sediment is redistributed into Cited by: 4.Interplay Between Salt Activities and Slope Instabilities, Bryant Canyon Area, Northwest Gulf of Mexico.
