Product Information. Geology of the United States' Seafloor presents new, definitive studies of the seafloor adjacent to the United States - the west coast, east coast, Alaskan margin, Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean - from the GLORIA long-range sidescan sonar images, and complementary seismic profiling, and magnetic surveys.

    This volume on continental margin sedimentation brings together an expert editorial and contributor team to create a state-of-the-art resource. Taking a global perspective, the book spans a range of timescales and content, ranging from how oceans transport particles, to how thick rock sequences are formed on continental margins. Summarizes and integrates our understanding of sedimentary. Peter Copeland is a professor in the Dept. of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Houston. His research has focused primarily on thermochronology and its application to continental tectonics.

Continental margin The broad, gentle pitch of the continental shelf gives way to the relatively steep continental slope. The more gradual transition to the abyssal plain is a sediment-filled region called the continental rise. The continental shelf, slope, and rise are collectively called the continental margin.

Continental margins refer to the region of transition from the land to the deep seafloor, i.e. between continental and oceanic an active continental margin, the boundary between the continent and the ocean is also a tectonic plate boundary, so there is a lot of geological activity around the margin.
