Sedimentation in a High Energy, Embayed, Continental Shelf Environment

Joe S. Creager

ABSTRACT

The continental shelf area immediately north of Seward Peninsula, Alaska, is characterized by medium-to coarse-grained clastic sediments and dominated by stronger than normal offshore currents. The pattern of current velocities is compared with the bathymetry, the distribution of sediment size and sorting characteristics, and the proximity of source areas.
