Atlantic Rifts and Continental Margins by Webster Mohriak, Manik Talwani

By Webster Mohriak, Manik Talwani

Published through the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph Series.

Atlantic Rifts and Continental Margins fills a huge info hole within the seismic documentation of the passive margins of the Atlantic basin. New options have motivated fresh advancements in conceptual types that combine geological and geophysical equipment for studying deep water areas. specialists talk about a whole spectrum of issues, together with the effect of Precambrian compressional tectonics historical past at the formation of continental margins, nearby gravity and magnetics, targeted seismic interpretation, and state of the art thoughts and methods. This quantity should be of curiosity either to educational geoscientists operating in basin research and to these engaged in petroleum exploration.Content:
