  "abstract": "Much of the modern upper (proximal) Monterey fan is a channel\u2013levee complex, the Upper Turbidite Sequence (UTS), that was deeply eroded after the channel breached a volcanic ridge to reach a deeper base level. Ages of sediment samples collected with the ALVIN submersible from the deepest outcrop within the channel\u2013levee system, 390 m below the adjacent western levee crest, indicate that the UTS deposits accumulated at \u22651 m ka\u22121 during the last 500 ka. Neogene and Early Pleistocene sediment accumulation on the fan prior to the UTS was much slower (",
