The goal of the shelf sediment dynamics component of STRATAFORM is to link sediment transport processes active on the continental shelfto the formation and preservation of event beds inshelf sediment deposits. An approach combining
shelf sediment-transport models with high-resolution measurements of water-column and bed properties over periods from several months to several
years allows us to make quantitative estimates of bed modification caused by sediment resuspension during episodic transport events.
