Parameter | Comments |
---|---|

Inflow location Easting (m) | |

Inflow location Northing (m) | |

Inflow direction (°E of N) | |

Inflow width (m) | |

Inflow thickness (m) | Also controls inflow velocity (assumes Froude Number∼1.0) |

Deposit volume (km^{3}) | |

Flow concentration (%) | Flow volume=Deposit volume/concentration |

Grain density (kg m^{−3}) | Fixed at 2500 kg m^{−3} |

Sea-water density (kg m^{−3}) | Fixed at 1030 kg m^{−3} |

Inflow grain distribution modal diameter (μm) | Inflow assumed to have a log-normal distribution |

Inflow grain distribution sorting index (φ) | Defined as standard deviation of φ |

Seafloor roughness (m) | Controls relation between basal shear stress and flow speed |

Sand diameter (μm) | Defines coarse-fine transition. Fixed at 250 μm |

Pelagic thickness (m) | Thickness of fine sediment deposited between flows |

Inverse modelling attempts to determine these parameters by finding values that minimize the root mean square error between the NTG in the wells and the coarse-fractions produced by the model.
