Abstract
    All core evidence supports the conclusion that abyssal plains are sites of graded-bed sequences deposited from turbidity flows. The deposits appear to be present-day equivalents of thin- to medium-bedded, graded, flysch-type sands and silts of many ancient geosynclines and sedimentary basins.
