    Early chemical diagenesis, sediment-water solute exchange, and storage of reactive organic matter near the mouth of the Changjiang, East China Sea • ARTICLE Continental Shelf Research, Volume 4, Issues , , Pages Robert C. Aller, James E. Mackin, William J. Ullman, Wang Chen-Hou, Tsai Shing-Min, Jin Jian-Cai, Sui Yong-Nian and Hong Jia-Zhen. Ocean basin - Ocean basin - Deep-sea sediments: The ocean basin floor is everywhere covered by sediments of different types and origins. The only exception are the crests of the spreading centres where new ocean floor has not existed long enough to accumulate a sediment cover. Sediment thickness in the oceans averages about metres (1, feet).

Lecture 14 - Marine Sediments – Formation and Distribution “When I think of the floor of the deep sea, the single, overwhelming fact that possesses my imagination is the accumulation of sediments. I see always the steady, unremitting, downward drift of materials from above, flake upon flake, layer upon layer – .

    work has been conducted on the continental shelf floor sediments supporting sea water column greater than 50 m m along the east coast off Tamil Nadu. In this paper we present an geochemical evaluation of the sea surficial sediment along the continental shelf, east coast of Tamil Nadu from Chennai to VelanganniAuthor: Nisha, H Achyuthan. The study area, the continental shelf including the coastal banks of the Ceará State, is mostly constituted of coarse-grained carbonates composed of ramified coral algae with considerable occurrences of halimeda, lithothamnium and rodoliths, which are the major components of the sea bottom platform supplying fish and crustaceans with nutrients.
