Pliocene-Pleistocene depositional sequences of the northern Gulf of Mexico, offshore Texas and Louisiana
This work tests the consistency of sequence stratigraphic methods by comparing the model documented in this study with previous models for growth faulted, siliciclastic environments. Interpretations derive from sequence ...
Volatile cycling and the thermal evolution of planetary mantle
The thermal histories of terrestrial planets are investigated using two parameterized mantle convection models for either Earth like planets and planets with no active plate tectonics. Using parameterized models of mantle ...
Kinematic analysis of the deformational structures on eastern Isla de Margarita, Venezuela
Because of its strategic location at the intersection of three regional trends, a kinematic study of the deformation on Isla de Margarita was undertaken to provide additional constraints for Caribbean plate tectonic models. ...
Petrogenesis of plutons and hypabyssal rocks of the Bering Strait region, Chukotka, Russia
Subduction of an oceanic plate beneath the Bering Strait region resulted in the formation of an extensive magmatic belt along the margin of the region during the Cretaceous. Plutons and gneiss domes of this age are broadly ...
Seismic traveltime inversion of wide-angle data for strongly-varying structure: Central Chilean margin and the subducting Juan Fernandez Ridge
This thesis presents the results of traveltime inversion of seismic wide-angle reflection/refraction data for strongly varying media. The two-dimensional velocity structure along two lines across the central Chilean margin ...
