The interaction of sedimentary systems with oceanographic processes in deep-water environments is still not well understood, despite its importance for improving paleoreconstructions and for understanding source-to-sink sediment transport. The aim of this study is to improve our understanding of sediment deposits formed by the action of bottom currents (contourites), and specifically elongated depressions that are called ‘moats’. Moats are common incisions oriented alongslope formed by the main core of the current and are usually associated...
