Atlantic Rifts and Continental Margins
Webster Mohriak, Manik Talwani
Wiley, Jan 10, 2000 - Nature - 354 pages
Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 115.
Atlantic Rifts and Continental Margins fills a major information gap in the seismic documentation of the passive margins of the Atlantic basin. New techniques have stimulated recent improvements in conceptual models that integrate geological and geophysical methods for interpreting deep water regions. Experts discuss a full spectrum of topics, including the influence of Precambrian compressional tectonics heritage on the formation of continental margins, regional gravity and magnetics, detailed seismic interpretation, and cutting-edge concepts and techniques. This volume will be of interest both to academic geoscientists working in basin analysis and to those engaged in petroleum exploration.
