A comment on two papers, by Walker (GeoAbstracts 78E/2328) and Normark (GeoAbstracts 78E/2278), in which attempts were made to synthesize current concepts and models of deep-marine sedimentation for modern and ancient submarine fans. Argues that several important aspects of these papers are misleading - namely, Walker's confusing use of the term 'thick-bedded' for 'proximal', problems introduced by application of the suprafan concept to ancient fan deposits; and unfortunate overemphasis of channeled submarine fan deposits as exploration targets.-after Author
