Encyclopedia

(Redirected to Abyssal channel article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Abyssal channels are channels in Earth's sea floor. They are formed by fast-flowing floods of turbid water caused by avalanches near the channel's head, with the sediment carried by the water causing a build-up of the surrounding abyssal plains. The effect of Earth's rotation causes more sediment to build up on one side of the channel than on the other.[1]
