Figure F34. Summary of diagnostic features of mass transport deposits in the Ursa Basin. At seismic scale, mass transport deposits are characterized by discontinuous reflections and of transparent to low amplitude. At logging scale, mass transport deposits typically show increased resistivity and increased density, presumably due to transport-induced compaction. In resistivity-at-bit imaging, folds are apparent. Finally, at core scale, folding is common in mass transport deposits, some with half-wavelengths of a meter or more.
