Shelf turbidite bodies have long been recognized in ancient rock successions, but most examples are poorly constrained both by the limited outcrop exposures and by the lack of modern analogues or data. Uncertainties include the mechanism or mechanisms responsible for generating the turbidites, the mode of transport onto and across shelf, the relationship to time-equivalent shoreface deposits, and the resulting three-dimensional sand-body geometry or sedimentary architecture. This study takes advantage of the exceptional outcrop exposures in the Book Cliffs of eastern Utah to answer some fundamental questions regarding the origin and distribution of shelf turbidite bodies. The lower Kenilworth...
