Basement structure and its influence on the structural configuration of the northern North Sea rift
(American Geophysical Union, 2017-06)
The northern North Sea rift basin developed on a heterogeneous crust comprising structures inherited from the Caledonian orogeny and Devonian postorogenic extension. Integrating two‐dimensional regional seismic reflection ...
3-D seismic images of an extensive igneous sill in the lower crust
(Geological Society of America, 2019-05-31)
When continents rift, magmatism can produce large volumes of melt that migrate upwards from deep below the Earth’s surface. To understand how magmatism impacts rifting, it is critical to understand how much melt is generated ...
The influence of structural inheritance and multiphase extension on rift development, the northern North Sea
The northern North Sea rift evolved through multiple rift phases within a highly heterogeneous crystalline basement. The geometry and evolution of syn‐rift depocenters during this multiphase evolution and the mechanisms ...
