Cyclone-induced Net Sediment Transport Pathway on the Continental Shelf of Tropical Australia Inferred from Reef Talus Deposits
Authors / CoAuthors
Tropical cyclones affect storm-dominated sediment transport processes that characterise Holocene shelf deposits in many shelf environments. In this paper, we describe the geomorphology of reef talus deposits found in the Gulf of Carpentaria and Arafura Sea, Australia,that we attribute to tropical cyclones. The orientation of these deposits is also indicative of a consistent, along-coast transport pathway.
