Understanding submarine fan and turbidite systems has been a major quest of geologists and geophysicists for decades. Historically important as reservoirs of vast quantities of hydrocarbons, recent advances in technology have dramatically improved our ability to examine these sand and mud bodies. Unfortunately, this prolifer- ation of data has made it difficult for geoscientists to examine all the aspects of these important systems. Weimer and Link have addressed this problem by compiling twenty-three key papers, discussing current examination techniques, and reviewing the important geological and geophysical characteristics of both ancient and modern fan and turbidite systems.
