Kory Konsoer, Jessica Zinger and Gary Parker Bankfull hydraulic geometry of submarine channels created by turbidity currents: Relations between bankfull channel characteristics and formative flow discharge Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface 118

Article first published online: 20 MAR 2013 | DOI: 10.1029/2012JF002422

Key Points

  • Submarine channels tend to be wider, deeper, and steeper than river channels
  • Volume sediment concentration ~0.2%-0.6% for channel-forming turbidity currents
  • Estimated discharges give hydraulic geometry trends similar to rivers
