Description :
The evolution of submarine channel systems in a mine-tailing deposit is presented. Three successsive phases of channel development were observed in time-series of seismic reflection, side-scan sonar and bathymetric surveys: a meandering channel phase| an apron phase, in wich the channel was obliterated and a rechannelized phase. Probable trajectories of the Rupert Inlet and Redondo systems in slope-discharge parameter space are proposed and illustrate the importance to the occurrence of meanders in subaqueous channels of the entrainment of ambient fluid and of suspended sediment loss through deposition and channel overspill.
