Abstract: ABSTRACT: Submarine canyons studied along the eastern coast of Oahu appear to
be of subaerial origin, drowned during island ridge subsidence. Where coarse sediments
are well supplied from reefs, and submarine ridges form obstructions, the
canyons have been filled and masked. Structures in the Oahu seamount province
formerly hypothesized to be of slide origin, appear to be in situ volcanic features,
and have determined patterns of deposition from the canyons. A more normal-leveed
distributary channel may exist in the Hawaiian Deep.
