National Geophysical Data Center, NOAA

This annotated global map show the total sediment thickness of the world's ocean basins. It may be useful in a discussion about how sedimentary transport processes and tectonics interact to create areas of high sediment thickness, particularly in the Gulf of Mexico and the Indian Ocean.
