Short summary
This paper proposes a method to reconstruct the hydraulic conditions of turbidity currents from turbidites. We investigated the validity and problems of this method in application to actual field datasets using artificial data. Once this method is established, it is expected that the method will elucidate the generation process of turbidity currents and will help to predict the geometry of resultant turbidites in deep-sea environments.
