Many mechanisms have been proposed for the origin of lamination in deep sea sediments, but without general agreement. Experiments in other environments have suggested that several different processes may operate in particle flow conditions. Those relevant to deep water conditions are briefly discussed, and a new quantitative model developed for lamina formation in fine-grained sediments on a continental margin.
