Rock physics interpolation Used for velocity modeling of chalks: Ontong Java plateau example
(Bentham Open, 2010)
Chalks are pelagic carbonate sediments that are deposited in deep-water environments. Their elastic behaviour is controlled by a combination of depositional conditions and subsequent diagenesis. In this paper, we ...
Crustal structure of the ultra-slow spreading Knipovich Ridge, North Atlantic, along a presumed ridge segment center
A combined ocean bottom seismometer, multichannel seismic reflection and gravity study has been carried out along the spreading direction of the Knipovich Ridge over a topographic high that defines a segment center. ...
Norwegian margin outer shelf cracking: a consequence of climate-induced gas hydrate dissociation?
A series of en echelon cracks run nearly parallel to the outer shelf edge of the mid-Norwegian margin. The features can be followed in a *60-km-long and *5-km-wide zone in which up to 10-m-deep cracks developed in the ...
Reconnaissance report and preliminary ground motion simulation of the 12 May 2008 Wenchuan earthquake
The Mw = 8.0Wenchuan earthquake of May 12, 2008, caused destruction over a wide area. The earthquake cost more than 69,000 lives and the damage is reported to have left more than 5 million people homeless. It is estimated ...
Hemipelagic deposits on the Mendeleev and northwestern Alpha submarine Ridges in the Arctic Ocean: acoustic stratigraphy, depositional environment and an inter-ridge correlation calibrated by the ACEX results
The first high resolution multichannel seismic data from the Mendeleev and Alpha Ridges in the Arctic Ocean have been used to investigate the depositional history, and compare acoustic stratigraphies of the three main ...
