Figure F11. Diagram of preliminary conceptual model used during Expedition 313 to account for the regular occurrence of coarse sand and gravels that are commonly poorly sorted, stratified, and glauconite rich. Multiple channels and/or regressive shorefaces at the rollover erode into and entrain older topset deposits. These sediments are remobilized down the clinoform slope via debris flows and turbidity currents to form apron or coalesced fans at the toe of slope. NJ = New Jersey.
