Sediment transport


Factsheets about sediment transport


This website presents the results of the project SEDCoral, which studies the sedimentary environment of deep-water corals. But what do we understand under “sedimentary environment?” Some basic information on (deep-sea) sediments and their transport over the seabed is presented in the factsheets below.

What is sediment?

Where does the sediment come from?

How are (deep sea) sediments transported?

Along or across?

Which shapes do we see on the seabed?
