Abstract
    Contourites are deep-water sedimentary deposits created under the influence of predominantly along-slope bottom currents. They are considered to be excellent deep-water recorders of global climatic change. Over the last decade, the improvement of deep-water survey technology enabled better visualising and understanding their driving processes, recognizing these deposits in more complex areas and in shallower depositional environments (such as shallow seas and lakes). Unfortunately, there still is no uniform and unequivocal classification, since the coupling between geological and hydrographic processes is rather vaguely defined due to the lack of good “in-situ” observations, in contrast to shallow marine and river systems. This paper aims to introduce the challenges and potential benefits that are ahead of us in contourite research, and aspires to open a dialogue between the deep and shallow water sediment dynamic communities.
