Geomorphology and evolution of the gigantic Murray canyons on the Australian southern margin
The Murray canyons are a group of deeply incised submarine canyons on a steep 400 km section of the continental slope off Kangaroo Island, South Australia. Some of the canyons are amongst the largest on Earth. The canyons, some 80 km long, descend from the shelf edge to the abyssal plain 5200 m deep. Sprigg Canyon, the deepest and one of the largest, has walls 2 km high. The thalwegs of the larger canyons are concave in profile, steepest on the upper continental slope (15-30°), with about 4°...[Show more]
