A simple stochastic sedimentation model of turbidity sequences that assumes a bed thickness corresponds to a waiting time between turbidity currents is proposed. Bed-thickness distributions are simulated by using a Monte-Carlo method with options for erosion models and basin types, and patterns of their cumulative frequency curves on a lognormal-probability chart were used to test the models. In order to achieve a better agreement with the observed field data, more realistic and comprehensive simulation models, incorporating additional geological parameters, are required.
