MOHO AND LOWER CRUSTAL REFLECTIVITY BENEATH A YOUNG RIFT BASIN - RESULTS FROM A 2-SHIP, WIDE-APERTURE SEISMIC-REFLECTION EXPERIMENT IN THE VALENCIA TROUGH (WESTERN MEDITERRANEAN)

Abstract:

The paper presents new images of the lower crust and Moho beneath the Valencia Trough - a young rift basin in the western Mediterranean. Thse images show several features not distinguishable on previously available conventional single-ship reflection profiles. The Moho, which was previously only seen intermittently, can now be confidently traced throughout the basin.
