Nature and Evolution of Deep Water Carbonate Drifts in the past 3 Million years, Inner Sea of the Maldives Archipelago, Equatorial Indian Ocean
The Maldives atolls, the very top of one of the largest modern carbonate platforms, occupy the central and largest part of the Chagos-Laccadives ridge located in the equatorial Indian Ocean. In the central part of the ...
Structural evolution of the central External Betic Cordillera, southern Spain
A new tectonic subdivision of the central External Betic Cordillera is proposed based on previous stratigraphic studies, interpretation of seismic reflection profiles and balanced cross-sections. All available surface and ...
Geologic evolution of conjugate volcanic passive margins: Pelotas Basin (Brazil) and offshore Namibia (Africa). Implication for global sea level changes
Volcanic passive margins are a major type of large igneous provinces, characterized by seaward dipping reflectors (SDRS), normally associated with subaerially emplaced basalt flows and intercalated at least in part with ...
Eastern Venezuela Basin: Sequence stratigraphy and structural evolution
A regional study has been carried out within the Eastern Venezuela Basin and its offshore continuation to the Orinoco Delta and the Barbados Accretionary Complex. The Eastern Venezuela Basin and its offshore continuation ...
A stratigraphic analysis of Paleogene deposition in northwest Europe and the role of graphic correlation in sequence stratigraphy
A sequence stratigraphic analysis of Paleogene deposits, using subsurface data (well logs, seismic data, and biostratigraphy) from the Central North Sea and published outcrop information from northwest Europe, has documented ...
Subduction zone thermal models: Numerical modeling and data analysis
Temperature distribution in subduction zones is a key factor in understanding magma generation, earthquake occurrence, metamorphic reactions, and geochemical element recycling. In this thesis, I have developed a new numerical ...
