A compilation of the most recent research. It examines a wide range of factors affecting sediments as part of a multi-disciplinary investigation, including studies of sedimentology, geochemistry, physical oceanography, and benthic biology. The Amazon River discharges enormous amounts of particulate and dissolved material to the continental shelf. Knowledge about the fate of this material is relevant to understanding sedimentary processes at the interface between major rivers and the ocean and to interpreting similar shelf environments preserved in the stratigraphic record. The uniqueness of this volume results from the multi-disciplinary and interactive nature of the research, and from the major importance of the Amazon dispersal system.
