It was a widely held opinion that submarine canyons were cut during the glacial stages of low sea level and now are essentially dormant features, disturbed only on rare occasions by high-speed turbidity currents of torrential proportions. Published in 1979 after a 10-year study, this volume contradicts this concept of the canyons, with years of measurements of currents in the axes of canyons and in other types of sea valleys

Francis P. Shepard left a rich scientific legacy including more than 230 published papers and books primarily addressed to the study of submarine canyons and turbidity currents, continental shelves and associated sediments, coastal processes and sediments and marine physiography and tectonics. His broad range of scientific interests and his remarkable ability to break new ground in each of these disciplines have served as a model for at least four generations of students. This new work from these Shepard students addresses problems in marine geology from the global scale to the local outcrop scale
