The North Faeroes margin has been an area of extensive margin inst ability since probably the Eocene (Nielsen and van Weering 1998; van Weering et al. 1998; Taylor et al. 2000). Typically, the products of such large-scale failure result in long run-out depos its spread over the abyssal plain. Large-scale mapping of the North Faeroes margin indicates that this is not the case in this more tectonically active area of the passive North Atlantic marg in (Taylor et al. 2000, this volume). Low to high resolution sidescan sonar data are shown here, charact erizing the channel system that has developed in response to sediment-column instability.
