Evolution of volcanic rifted margins: origin of seaward dipping reflectors with insights from flexure and 'process-oriented’ gravity modelling

Abstract:

Seaward dipping reflectors (SDRs) are ubiquitous features of the offshore regions of volcanic rifted continental margins where they comprise wedge-shaped packages of mainly extrusive lava flows. SDRs are typically observed on seismic reflection profiles; a compilation of which is studied in this thesis. A seismic reflection profile from offshore Greenland is re-processed in order to quantify the impact of semblance analysis on SDR geometry. With constraints on geometry known, this thesis ...
