Continental margin sedimentation. From sediment transport to sequence stratigraphy / Осадконакопление условий континентальной окраины. От переноса до отложения

‘If we don’t learn from history, we’re doomed to relive it’. Unlike human history, most of the events that form the record of Earth history are out of our control. However, we may still learn from them and prepare ourselves for future environmental events (e.g. storm surges, sea-level rise). Understanding continental-margin sedimentation is important for many reasons, as diverse as finding natural resources and maintaining safe navigation. In addition, the stratigraphy that results from margin sedimentation provides an extremely rich record of Earth history – including the natural processes and, more recently, the human impacts operating both on land and in the sea. Unfortunately, we cannot learn from this record until we can read it. Large portions of the following text have this purpose, and collectively provide a unique contribution to the continuing legacy of studies to unravel the secrets of margin stratigraphy. <...>
