Diffuse oceanic plate boundaries: Kinematic observations and rheological constraints
We use a thin viscous sheet model to interpret the observed shortening along a seismic reflection profile collected on the Phedre cruise (on the deforming oceanic lithosphere in the central Indian Ocean). We determine the ...
Seismic waveform tomography with multicomponent data at a groundwater contamination site
This thesis develops an SH-wave version of frequency-domain, full waveform tomography, and applies it, together with traditional acoustic waveform tomography, to a multicomponent seismic data set acquired over a shallow ...
Three-dimensional seismic structure of the Leeward Antilles arc from seismic refraction and refraction and reflection tomography
We have developed new velocity and Moho interface models for the Dutch Antilles region of the Leeward Antilles arc from independent and simultaneous 3-D inversion of first arrival and PmP traveltimes. The first arrival and ...
Holocene evolution of the Matagorda/Lavaca Bay complex, central Texas coast
The evolution of the Matagorda/Lavaca Bay complex demonstrates that although eustasy was an important control on incised valley flooding during the Holocene, antecedent topography, climate change, and barrier migration ...
Late Oligocene and Miocene evolution of the carbonate system in the Gulf of Martaban (northern Andaman Sea): Effects of eustacy, tectonics, and siliciclastic input; Comparison with the Maldives carbonate system
Eustacy was the dominant factor influencing the Gulf of Martaban Field isolated platform, subdivided in Lower and Upper Martaban Limestones (LML) and (UML). LML was established on top of a faulted accretionary basement ...
