CRUSTAL STRUCTURE, GRAVITY-ANOMALIES AND FLEXURE OF THE LITHOSPHERE IN THE VICINITY OF THE CANARY-ISLANDS

Abstract:

Simple elastic plate models have been used to calculate the flexure of the lithosphere caused by volcanic loading at the Canary Islands and sediment loading at the Moroccan continental margin. By comparing the calculated flexure to observations based on seismic refraction and free-air gravity anomaly data, constraints have been placed on the long-term elastic thickness of the lithosphere. A backstripping study supports the suggestion that the lithosphere underlying the Moroccan margin, like i...
