Neritic Sedimentary Facies

Understanding this vast depositional realm has been a protracted study. As each new sector of the continental margin was documented, the new findings necessitated re-evaluation of previous interpretations. This chapter is the result of a total re-study of all bottom samples acquired since 1989 and their placement in a facies scheme that is applicable to the entire continental margin.
