We study many aspects of deep-water depositional systems, including canyons, slope channels and their associated thin bedded turbidites (levees and terraces), slope sediments, mass transport deposits, lobes and splays. We combine digitally-­based outcrop studies, oceanographic studies of modern systems, and state of the art numerical modeling, to understand deepwater depositional systems and their resulting reservoir architecture and properties.
