Abstract

1) Environments of erosion appear on the sonographs either as patterns with isolated strong reflections or as uniform patterns of strong reflectivity. 2) Environments of deposition are depicted on the sidescan-sonar records as smooth, featureless surfaces that have low to moderate reflectivity. 3) Environments of sediment reworking constitute areas affected by a combination of erosional and depositional processes. -from Authors
