Gravity anomalies and magmatism along the western continental margin of the British Isles

Abstract:

Seismic data show that the western margin of the British Isles in the region of the Hatton Bank comprises a thin wedge of sediments, an extrusive volcanic sequence, stretched continental crust, and a thick high-velocity lower-crustal body. The sediments represent a load on the surface of the stretched crust, which should subside under their weight. The extrusive volcanic rocks defined by a seaward-dipping reflector sequence, were emplaced in the crust during the later stages of rifting. The l...
