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 ...
Drumlin relief is a key parameter for testing predictions of models of drumlin formation. Although this metric is commonly described in textbooks as being of the order of a fewtens ofmetres, our critical review of the ...
The chalk depositional system in the Central Graben – concepts of regional geology, sedimentology and stratigraphy
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-08)
Improved quantitative calibration of rock physics models
(Geological Society, 2011-11)
In reservoir characterization, rock-physics models provide the link between seismic observables (density, compressional and shear wavespeeds) and reservoir parameters such as porosity, lithology and fluid saturation. ...
Calendar year age estimates of Allerød - Younger Dryas sea-level oscillations at Os, western Norway
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2004)
A detailed shoreline displacement curve documents the Younger Dryas transgression in western Norway. The relative sea-level rise was more than 9m in an area which subsequently experienced an emergence of almost 60 m. The ...
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 ...
Evaluating balanced section restoration with thermochronology data: A case study from the Central Pyrenees
(American Geophysical Union, 2014-05-06)
We present a new method that can be used to quantitatively evaluate the consistency between balanced section restorations and thermochronological data sets from orogenic belts. We have applied our method to a crustal-scale ...
Fracture-generated permeability and groundwater yield in Norway
(Norges geologiske undersøkelse, 2002)
The transport of groundwater in bedrock is largely determined by interconnected fractures and their apertures. The conditions by which fractures become interconnected are thus of primary importance in understanding ...
The onset of flysch sedimentation in the Kaoko Belt (NW Namibia) – Implications for the pre-collisional evolution of the Kaoko–Dom Feliciano–Gariep orogen
Detrital zircon provenance study of a metamorphosed sedimentary succession in the eastern part of the Kaoko Belt in Namibia has revealed two distinct sources for the Neoproterozoic sedimentation along the southwestern Congo ...
