Structure and evolution of the Bellsund Graben between Forlandsundet and Bellsund (Spitsbergen) based on marine seismic data
(Geological Soceity of Norway, 2009)
Seismic interpretation of multi-channel seismic data acquired along the western shelf of Spitsbergen allowed identification of the main geological features of the area, including the Hornsund Fault Zone, and the Forlandsundet ...
A new tectono-magmatic model for the Lofoten/Vesterålen Margin at the outer limit of the Iceland Plume influence
The Early Eocene continental breakup was magma-rich and formed part of the North Atlantic Igneous Province. Extrusive and intrusive magmatism was abundant on the continental side, and a thick oceanic crust was produced up ...
Seafloor expression and shallow structure of a surfacing fold-and-thrust system: an example from Isfjorden, West Spitsbergen
(Norwegian Polar Institute, 2012)
A detailed map of the structure of the West Spitsbergen Fold-and-Thrust Belt in the shallow part of the Isfjorden area, Spitsbergen, is presented. The map was constructed from a new dense grid of 2D multichannel reflection ...
Crustal structure and evolution of the Arctic Caledonides: Results fromcontrolled-source seismology
The continuation of the Caledonides into the Barents Sea has long been a subject of discussion, and two major orientations of the Caledonian deformation fronts have been suggested: NNW-SSE striking and NE-SW striking. A ...
The crustal structure in the transition zone between the western and eastern Barents Sea
(Oxford University Press, 2018-07)
We present a crustal-scale seismic profile in the Barents Sea based on new data. Wide-angle seismic data were recorded along a 600 km long profile at 38 ocean bottom seismometer and 52 onshore station locations. The modelling ...
