[Invited oral presentation].

      Why study continental shelves? The continental shelf is the part of the seafloor most used by society. Although shelf areas account for little more than 8% of the marine areas of the world, they are the part of the sea most used for navigation, recreation, fishing and aquaculture, mineral exploration, waste disposal and, increasingly in the future, in the production of renewable energy from Cited by: 4. Many continental margins are marked by thick sedimentary wedges extending up and down their coast. Prominent examples include the Atlantic Coastal Plain and Gulf Coastal Plain in the United States. These basins and sediments are relatively young, and their sediment was derived from continental erosion.

The perfection and use of new methods of marine surveying in offshore regions, so much more rapid and accurate than methods available hereto- fore, have added a continually increasing store of accurate data on the submerged continental margins of .

[John Stevens Schlee; Richard Murray Pratt; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. Structure. A continental shelf typically extends from the coast to depths of – metres (– feet). It is gently inclined seaward at an average slope of about °.

In nearly all instances, it ends at its seaward edge with an abrupt drop called the shelf this lies the continental slope, a much steeper zone that usually merges with a section of the ocean floor called.

Sheridan, John A. Grow. A continental shelf is a portion of a continent that is submerged under an area of relatively shallow water known as a shelf sea.

Much of these shelves has been exposed during glacial periods and interglacial shelf surrounding an island is known as an insular shelf. The continental margin, between the continental shelf and the abyssal plain, comprises a steep continental slope.

The world’s combined continental slope has a total length of approximatelykm (, miles) and descends at an average angle in excess of 4° from the shelf break at the edge of the continental shelf to the beginning of the ocean.

The “classic” transition is that of the passive continental margin off the northeastern border of the United States, with a steep slope starting at the shelf break and a concave-upward : William W.

The Blake Plateau lies in the western Atlantic Ocean off the southeastern United States coasts of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Blake Plateau lies between the North American continental shelf and the deep ocean basin extending about kilometers (90 miles) east and west by kilometers ( miles) north and south, with a depth of about meters (1, feet.

The km-long Hudson Shelf Valley, the largest physiographic feature on the continental shelf, bisects the New York Bight region (Fig. The Hudson Shelf Valley is the submerged seaward extension of the ancestral Hudson River drainage system that, unlike most incised valleys on the Atlantic shelf, has not been infilled with sediment.

The Atlantic and Gulf coasts show the classic form of a passive continental margin: a low-lying coastal plain, broad continental shelf, then a steep continental slope, gentle continental rise, and flat abyssal plain.
