Abstract

The high proportion (>50%) of chaotic silt compared to graded sand in the distal, outer-fan sublobes may be related to the unstable, muddy, canyon-wall source areas of the extensive Mississippi delta-fed basin slope. A predominance of chaotic silt in cores or outcrops from outer-fan lobes thus may predict similar settings for ancient fans. -from Authors
