The upper Proterozoic Zerrissene turbidite system (ZTS) is an exceptionally well-exposed example of a deep-water system. Lack of vegetation and other cover, combined with extensive isoclinal folding, results in continuous, cross sectional outcrops many kilometers (3–6 mi) long. Many aspects of the Zerrissene system remain unconstrained: the basin margins and true basin geometry cannot be defined; the source of the turbidite sediments is known only notionally; and a detailed structural reconstruction is still to be completed. Yet, even with these uncertainties, the Zerrissene deposits provide insight into the depositional geometry of deep-water systems at a subseismic scale.
