  • Deep-water heterogeneity research focus -Framework for exploring deep-water heterogeneity at large (seismic) scale: seafloor and shallow subsurface Taranaki Basin
  • Up- to down-dip changes in channel networks
  • Interaction of channels with mass-transport deposits (i.e., submarine landslides) -
  • Focus on sand-prone architectural elements- channel and lobe deposits
  • Small (outcrop) to large (seismic) scale
  • Architectural element geometries
  • Stacking patterns and evolution
