Tsunamiites - Features and Implications
Wydawnictwo: Elsevier Science Publishers
Several contributions in this book present new ideas concerning the characteristic sedimentary records of tsunamis and provide the criteria for recognizing features of various tsunamiites. The importance of studies of bedforms of tsunamiites from various environments is emphasized. New information is provided on tsunami-derived boulder deposits.
The significance of studies on tsunamiites in the archeological and geological past is also illustrated in this book. For example, the Mediterranean homogenites, and the K/T boundary meteorite impact-induced tsunamiites have been investigated from new aspects.
