The Turbidites Research Group

Current Activities

The TRG mission is to pursue cutting-edge research into deep-marine clastics and to develop better ways of transferring research results and associated information to sponsors.

Research Portfolio

  • Turbidity current interactions with bathymetry
  • External controls on turbidite system architecture
  • The debris flow - turbidity current spectrum
  • Sediment remobilisation, deformation and amalgamation during slope evolution
  • Submarine channel development
  • Numerical modelling
  • The Deep-Marine Architecture Knowledge Store (D-MAKS)

Knowledge Transfer

  • The TRG seeks to place itself at the forefront of effective knowledge transfer practice and to become the default portal for information on deep marine clastic systems
