Abstract

A regressive depositional sequence has been prograding on the northeastern Tyrrhenian Shelf since the establishment of the present high stand of sea level. Thickness and distribution of this prograding sequence are chiefly controlled by the Tiber Delta sediment source and the oceanographic conditions on the shelf. Wavy bedforms characterize the Tiber prodelta slope between 35 and 100 m water depth. On 3.5 kHz subbottom profiles, these bedforms show the same morphology and internal depositional geometry as most of the deep-water examples of sediment waves. ?? 1988 Springer-Verlag New York Inc.
