In contrast to more classical interpretations of submarine canyon systems ( Mutti and Ricci-Lucchi, 1978 ), no single channel served as a discrete point source for the turbidite beds of the Tyee Formation. Instead, a series of channels developed along the base of the continental slope and conveyed sediment...
