Continental slopes are the edges of continental blocks, the zones of change from continental crust to oceanic crust.

They are critical links in the chain of sedimentary processes that eventually carry sediment to the true ocean basin floor. The passive margin, from Florida to southern Nova Scotia, is volcanic, characterized by seaward-dip-ping reflectors (SDRs) near the continent-ocean boundary.

The continental margin is one of the three major zones of the ocean floor, the other two being deep-ocean basins and mid-ocean continental margin is the shallow water area found in proximity to continents.

The continental margin consists of three different features: the continental rise, the continental slope, and the continental shelf.

Sable Island holds especial interest in postglacial palynology because it lies about miles east of Halifax, Nova Scotia, near the edge of the continen-tal shelf and is the only emerged part left of an extensive archipelago which existed on the shelf dur.

Sea-Floor Sunday #9: Continental slope near Fraser Island, Australia Janu This week I decided to combine a sea floor image with a post about a paper that came out in Geology this month about everybody’s favorite topic — sediment transfer to the deep sea!.

Continental slope – The slope is “the deepening sea floor out from the shelf edge to the upper limit of the continental rise, or the point where there is a general decrease in steepness” (IHO, ). Compared with the relatively flat surface and gentle inclination of the continental shelf, the continental slope dips steeply into the ocean basins at an average angle of around 4° although.
