How sampling procedures and sedimentary processes of confined basins can modify the observed frequency distribution of turbidite thickness? Examples from Tertiary confined basins of central and northern Apennine (Italy)


The assessment of turbidite thickness statistics, along with variability of bed geometry, represents an open research question for both applied and pure sedimentology. Empirical frequency distributions of turbidite thickness... [ view full abstract ]
