The deep ocean is the largest sedimentary system basin on the planet.
It serves as the primary storage point for all terrestrially weathered sediment
that makes it beyond the near-shore environment. These deep-marine
offshore deposits have become a focus of attention in exploration due to
the progressive depletion of conventional onshore reservoirs. Florian Pohl’s
performs experiments in the Eurotank of Utrecht University linking the
sedimentological characteristics of turbidity currents to the topography
of the ocean floor.
