Abstract

The continental slope off the NE US is a relatively steep, morphologically complex surface which shows abundant evidence of submarine slides and related processes. Because this area may be developed by the petroleum industry, questions arise concerning the potential for further slope failures or unacceptable deformations and the conditions necessary to cause such instabilities. Accordingly, a generalized analysis of slope stability and the stress-strain-time-dependent behavior of the sediments is being conducted. Results are discussed in detail.-after Authors
