Figure 5. Seismic sequence model of a single glacial cycle (Larter and Barker, 1989, 1991b).
Unsorted diamicton is deposited on the upper slope during glacial (GS) maxima, and on the shelf
during retreat. Pelagic and hemipelagic deposition takes place on shelf and slope during
interglacials (IGS). With re-advance, some or all shelf topsets may be eroded.
