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 ...
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 ...
The deformation history of the Villa de Cura blueschist belt, Venezuela: Implications for the evolution of the Caribbean-South American Plate boundary zone
This study presents a new conceptual tectonic model for the exhumation and emplacement of the Villa de Cura blueschist belt, which places specific constraints on the development of the Caribbean-South American plate boundary ...
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 ...
