This volume has been edited from the proceedings and discussion at an International Workshop on Fine-Grained Sediments held at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada, in August 1982, which focused on modern and ancient, siliciclastic and biogenic, fine-grained sediments from a range of deep-water environments. It contains 38 papers in 9 sections. An introduction is followed by a section dealing with processes of erosion, transport and deposition in deepwater. There are then sections on each of the main facies types, and papers on internal characteristics and facies models.
