Discontinuous turbidity currents and powder snow avalanches.

Abstract

Discontinuous turbidity currents may be caused by earthquakes, submarine landslides, or wave agitation. They are flows of water laden with suspended sediment that move down bottom slopes of bodies of otherwise still water and are propelled by the submerged weight of the sediment. Turbidity currents are not buoyancy conserving due to the erosion and deposition of suspended material: the possibility of self acceleration in the dicontinuous case is investigated using non conservative thermal theory and considering water and sediment entrainment and friction. (A.J.)
