How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Introduction
In my PhD project I have investigated process-response relationships in source-to-sink (S2S) systems on a global scale, with focus on shelf-edge deltas and submarine canyons as large-scale sinks and facilitators of sediment transport to deep-water environments. In my current research I aim to increase understanding of the co-evolution of siliciclastic and carbonate S2S systems in mixed margin settings and their preserved geomorphology and stratigraphic record.

Poster
Full-text available
Despite their important role in sediment dispersal to marine environments, and their influence on the geomorphology and hydrodynamic setting of continental margins, shelf-edge deltas are commonly overlooked in source-to-sink models, perhaps because few are developed during present-day highstand conditions. In subsurface and outcrop, their recogniti...
Article
Full-text available
The role of possible controlling factors in influencing the geomorphology of submarine canyons has been investigated using a database of 282 globally distributed modern examples collated from the literature and open-source worldwide bathymetry. Canyon geomorphology has been characterized quantitatively in terms of maximum and average canyon dimensi...
Article
Full-text available
A database-informed metastudy of 294 globally distributed submarine canyons has been conducted with the aim of elucidating the role of tectonic setting on submarine-canyon geomorphology. To achieve this, data from seafloor and subsurface studies derived from 136 peer-reviewed publications and from open-source worldwide bathymetry datasets have been...
Preprint
The role of possible controlling factors in influencing the geomorphology of submarine canyons has been investigated using a database of 282 globally distributed modern examples collated from the literature, open-source worldwide bathymetry and satellite imagery. Canyon geomorphology has been characterized quantitatively in terms of maximum and ave...
Article
Comparative analyses of deep-marine sedimentological studies are hindered by the wide variety in methods of data collection, scales of observation, resolution, classification approaches and terminology. A relational database, the Deep-Marine Architecture Knowledge Store (DMAKS), has been developed to facilitate such analyses, through the integratio...
