Figure F8. Diagram of different scales of clinoform and clinothem and the nomenclature of key physiographic provinces and points used during Expedition 313. Clinoform scales vary, merging to form "compound clinoforms" depending on the interplay of sediment supply and local sea level change. (Adapted from Helland-Hansen and Hampson, 2009.) A. Depositional dip profile of three scales of clinoform. B. Intermediate scale, intrashelf clinoforms. This scale was the focus of Expedition 313. C. Overview of clinoform and clinothem provinces.
