Abstract

The Sahara Slide occurred approximately at 50-59 Ka offshore Western Sahara in a mid-slope setting (1900 m water-depth). The existence of several buried and stacked slide events, seen on high resolution seismic profiles, provide new insights into slide location and triggering mechanisms. Buried slide scarps coincide remarkably with scarps and boundaries of the Sahara Slide, presently exposed on the seafloor. The objectives of this work are to examine the long-term stability of this part of the margin and investigate the triggering mechanism(s) that led to these massive events.
