Dynamics of the Norwegian Margin by Geological Society of London

By Geological Society of London

The papers and learn effects provided right here were ready as a part of the built-in Basin reviews undertaking. This venture had the target of learning the lithospheric and top crustal approaches governing the formation and evolution of extensional and foreland basins and to decipher the position of tectonics, sea point and sedimentary tactics within the filling of such basins.The Dynamics of the Norwegian Margin module all in favour of the rifted sedimentary basins of the northern North Sea and stale Mid-Norway. This prolific hydrocarbon province has an in depth and clinical database and gives a special chance to review basic earth techniques, from failed rifting to crustal breakup and accretion of oceanic crust.A new set of versions for basin formation and filling has been derived, together with linking of sedimentary basin faulting to reduce crustal deformation, signature and variability of syn-rift infill, correlation of mineralogy to seismic signature, nature and features of volcanic margin formation and distribution of present-day tension box. additionally to be had: The Making of a Land - The Geology of Norway - ISBN 8292394427 eu Lithosphere Dynamics - Memoir no 32 - ISBN 1862392129 The Geological Society of LondonFounded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on the planet, and one of many greatest publishers within the Earth sciences.The Society publishes quite a lot of high quality peer-reviewed titles for teachers and pros operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable foreign recognition for the standard of its work.The many parts within which we submit in include:-Petroleum geology-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology-Volcanology, magmatic reports and geochemistry-Remote sensing-History of geology-Regional geology publications
