CHIRP sub-bottom profiles showing two clinothems in the Gulf of Papua. (Top) The older clinothem consists of oblique clinoforms mantled by flat-lying strata above a flooding surface. Above a significant erosional unconformity lies the modern clinothem, here represented by seaward dipping reflectors. (Bottom) Location map. See also the MARGINS 2008 Decadal Review research nugget.
