... of dragging keels of ice/icebergs exerted on the seafloor and is referred to as ice gauging (scouring). Its analysis can be used for identification of ice scour-affected layers in other sediment cores collected in this region, and for the purpose of creating a representative database, predicting...

..., hydraulic jumps occurred at several places over the trough to the stoss side of the step in a single flow due to the non-uniform and unsteady flow state of the surge-type turbidite succession. As a result, the reproduced succession exhibited multiple local scours and coarse-grained fill in the lower parts...

The relationship between the wrinkled surface and bioclasts such as shells and both prior- and later-formed scour surfaces, and horizontal and vertical burrows show that these wrinkles did...

...Bernhard Salcher; Günther Prasicek; Sebastian Baumann; Florian Kober Abstract Glaciers exert a major control on the shape of mountain topography. They tend to reduce relief above and scour troughs below the equilibrium line altitude (ELA). While many studies report this dichotomy, relief-limiting...

...Joel S. Scheingross; Michael P. Lamb Abstract Waterfall plunge pools experience cycles of sediment aggradation and scour that modulate bedrock erosion, habitat availability, and hazard potential. We calculate sediment flux divergence to evaluate the conditions under which pools deposit and scour...

... on wind-scoured stoss-side exposures of seven crescentic dunes with heights ranging from 1.7 m to 11.2 m. Dozens of grainflow thickness measurements were taken along transverse-oriented strata normal to the crest on each dune. The results show that grainflow thickness averages from 1 cm to 4 cm...

Given that the scour threshold lines proposed by Annandale (1995) and Kirsten et al. (2000) are based on the same evaluation...

The approach can be adapted to other landslide geohazards so that different geohazard locations can be evaluated with a common metric. Steep creek process frequency is estimated based on field observations...

The distributary channels show characteristics of repeatedly occurred erosion, scouring, filling, and reoccupation. We argue that the depositional characteristics are associated...

Mapping of outcrop-scale surfaces and sets of cross-strata between these surfaces for the Jurassic Page Sandstone near Page, Arizona, USA, demonstrates that the stratigraphic signature of autogenic behavior is captured by variable scour depths and subsequent fillings, whereas...
