Paleocurrent indicators in deep-sea sediment
The fabric and texture of deep-sea sediments have been used to detect periods of high-velocity bottom-water flow through the Vema Channel in the southwest Atlantic Ocean. In addition, the alignment of the long axis of magnetic grains has been used to indicate the direction of bottom-water flow. Copyright © 1979 AAAS.
