In this lesson, students apply principles of stratigraphy to investigate a large submarine landslide in the Atlantic Ocean off the coasts of Virginia and North Carolina. This slide, called the Albemarle-Currituck Slide, occurred approximately 18,000 years ago. It is estimated that over 33 cubic miles of material slid seaward from the edge of the continental shelf, possibly causing a tsunami that affected ... Full description.
