Example text

At their proximal ends, in depths shallower than 3000 m, the avalanches are in the form of flat-bottomed steep sided chutes, where erosion and down-slope transport predominate. At the heads some of the chutes are low relief ridges aligned parallel to its axis. These highs may be due either to scour or to compression created by velocity differences between adjacent flows. The distal ends of some of the chutes are characterized by a series of convex down-slope steps that may be the creation of a series of overlapping flows, or represent local exposures of massive basalt levels.

Possibly the origin of the scarp on the upper slope may have a simpler explanation. It may simply represent differences in the thickness of the avalanche deposits or a plane of separation between the head and toe of the avalanche. If it is a plane of separation it would imply that as the avalanche traveled down slope it broke apart into two or more segments with the upper one being perched on the flank of the subaerial segment of the volcanic edifice. Another factor that controlled the physical aspects of inshore/offshore composite avalanches is the location of the volcano whose collapse contributed to the avalanche.
