A turbidite is an undersea avalanche of mud and stones. These occur on quite a large scale along the edges of the continental shelf, but can also occur in lakes. Even in older sediments turbidites are regularly found. Turbidite deposits are always graded. In the layer, the grains are becoming finer upwards. In turbidite deposits sedimentary structures occur like bouncing tracks (flute casts).
