Tectono-sedimentary evolution of the Plio-Pleistocene Corinth rift, Greece
The onshore central Corinth rift contains a syn‐rift succession >3 km thick deposited in 5–15 km‐wide tilt blocks, all now inactive, uplifted and deeply incised. This part of the rift records upward deepening from fluviatile ...
Structural evolution of sheared margin basins: the role of strain partitioning. Sørvestsnaget Basin, Norwegian Barents Sea
Spatio-temporal analysis of basins formed along sheared margins has received much less attention than those formed along orthogonally extended margins. Knowledge about the structural evolution of such basins is important ...
Building up or out? Disparate sequence architectures along an active rift margin-Corinth rift, Greece
(The Geological Society of America, 2017-12)
Early Pleistocene synrift deltas developed along the southern Corinth rift margin were deposited in a single, dominantly lacustrine depocenter and were subject to the same climate-related base-level and sediment supply ...
Structure and flow properties of syn-rift border faults: The interplaybetween fault damage and fault-related chemical alteration (Dombjerg Fault, Wollaston Forland, NE Greenland)
Structurally controlled, syn-rift, clastic depocentres are of economic interest as hydrocarbon reservoirs; understanding the structure of their bounding faults is of great relevance, e.g. in the assessment of fault-controlled ...
Facies model for a coarse-grained, tide-influenced delta: Gule Horn Formation (Early Jurassic), Jameson Land, Greenland
Tide-dominated deltas have an inherently complex distribution of heterogeneities on several different scales, and are less well-understood than their wave- and river-dominated counterparts. Depositional models of these ...
Structural inheritance and rapid rift-length establishment in a multiphase rift: The East Greenland rift system and its Caledonian orogenic ancestry
We investigate (i) margin‐scale structural inheritance in rifts and (ii) the time scales of rift propagation and rift length establishment, using the East Greenland rift system (EGR) as an example. To investigate the ...
