Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Turbidity currents represent major geohazards since they can break communication cables, subsea pipelines and oil and gas infrastructure. Understanding where they occur is critical for ocean management. This map displays the distribution of potentially active turbidity currents in eastern Baffin fjords.
