Subsurface sediment mobilization (SSM) – which includes soft sediment deformations, sand injections, shale diapirs and mud volcanoes – is more widespread than previously thought. The ever-increasing resolution of subsurface data yielded many new observations of SSM, not only from regions obviously prone to sediment remobilization, such as an active tectonic setting or in a region with exceptionally large sediment supply, but also from tectonically quiescent areas. Until now, all the different aspects of SSM have largely been treated as separate phenomena. There is very little cross-referencing between, for example, studies of mud volcanoes and those of sand injections, although...
