Li (Ada) Wan's project aims to model the material transport process from the continental shelf, to slope, to abyssal plain. The project will consider factors such as turbidity currents (sediment plunging and submarine landslide), transportation (channel natural levee complex or canyon) and sedimentation at the end (submarine fan). The project will mimic the sequence from slide, slump and debris flow to turbidity flow to show the architecture of deep water systems in 3D models at multiple scales.
