Tectonostratigraphic evolution of Neuquen Basin, Argentina
The area is located in west central Argentina, east of the Andes. It was a Mesozoic backarc basin which evolved into a foredeep basin during the upper Cretaceous, when a fold and thrust belt was formed to the west. The ...
Finite element modeling of thrust faulting
Finite Element modeling of thrust faulting shows that the faults will propagate upward at very low angles from the leading edge of a regional horizontal decollement surface located at various depths in a homogeneous block ...
Late Quaternary glacial history of the northern Antarctic Peninsula: Evidence from the Bellingshausen continental shelf
Piston cores and Precision Depth Recorder (PDR) data collected from the western margin of the Northern Antarctic Peninsula were examined to reconstruct the late Wisconsinian glacial setting of this region and characterize ...
Fluvial influence on high-frequency sedimentary cycle geometry: The transition from strandplain to deltaic deposition in the Cretaceous Point Lookout Sandstone, San Juan Basin, Colorado
The Point Lookout Sandstone undergoes an abrupt transition from strandplain-dominated to deltaic-dominated deposition in the northwestern part of the San Juan Basin near Durango, Colorado. The onset of deltaic deposition ...
