Structural architecture and tectonic evolution of the Shabrawet Syrian Arc inverted zone at the Northern termination of the Gulf of Suez rift, Egypt.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): International Geology Review. Nov2022, Vol. 64 Issue 20, p2941-2965. 25p.

Abstract: The present study offers a novel opportunity to characterize the structural style and tectonic evolution of the Mesozoic Shabrawet inverted structure zone and its interaction with the northward propagation of the Gulf of Suez rift, Egypt. Based on the ...

Cenozoic rifting and inversion of Beibuwan Basin and its linkage with the strike-slip movement along the Ailao Shan-Red River Shear Zone.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): International Geology Review. Nov2022, Vol. 64 Issue 20, p2966-2983. 18p.

Abstract: The Cenozoic Beibuwan Basin is located along the eastern margin of the Ailao Shan Red River Shear Zone (ASRRSZ). The rifting and inversion processes of this basin provide important clues to the mechanism by which extrusion tectonics drive continental r...

The dismembering of the Adria platforms following the Late Cretaceous-Eocene abortive rift: a review of the tectono-stratigraphic record in the southern Apennines.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): International Geology Review. Nov2022, Vol. 64 Issue 20, p2866-2889. 24p.

Abstract: We present a review of the Maastrichtian-Miocene tectono-stratigraphic evolution of the southern Apennines. Starting from the Late Cretaceous, a large part of the Africa-Adria domain, from Lybia to Italy, was affected by an abortive rift event. In the ...

The 2020 Perachora peninsula earthquake sequence (Εast Corinth Rift, Greece): spatiotemporal evolution and implications for the triggering mechanism.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Acta Geophysica. Dec2022, Vol. 70 Issue 6, p2581-2601. 21p.

Abstract: In this work, we study the January 1, 2020 – June 8, 2021, earthquake activity in the East Corinth Rift (central Greece), one of the most seismically active areas in Europe. During this period an intense earthquake sequence occurred in the Perachora pe...

Tectono‐sedimentary development of early synrift half‐graben subbasins in the Miocene Pohang Basin, southeastern Korea.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Basin Research. Dec2022, Vol. 34 Issue 6, p2135-2161. 27p.

Abstract: Early synrift half‐grabens, herein named the Chilpo and Sinheung subbasins, have been newly recognised in the north‐central area of the Miocene Pohang Basin, Korea. The subbasins are closely aligned along an array of NNW‐trending strike‐slip faults and...

New magnetic anomaly map for the Red Sea reveals transtensional structures associated with rotational rifting.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Scientific Reports. 10/22/2022, Vol. 12 Issue 1, p1-13. 13p.

Abstract: The Red Sea is a modern analogue for studying continental break-up. Particularly, the Red Sea shows along-strike variability in the architecture, magmatism and associated style of rifting. In order to study these variabilities, continuous geophysical d...

Delineating structural features of North Cameroon using the EIGEN6C4 high‐resolution global gravitational model.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Geological Journal. Oct2022, Vol. 57 Issue 10, p4285-4299. 15p.

Abstract: The Cretaceous basins of the West and Central African Rift System (WCARS) are characterized by sinistral strike–slip movements observed between the Benue and Arabian–Nubian microplates. These basins share a similar basin‐filling structure, history, and...

Tectono‐stratigraphic evolution of the rift and post‐rift systems in the Northern Campos Basin, offshore Brazil.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Basin Research. Oct2022, Vol. 34 Issue 5, p1655-1687. 33p.

Abstract: The Campos and Santos Basins have been a focus of subsurface studies since the discovery in 2006 of large accumulations of hydrocarbons in the Early Cretaceous rift and post‐rift strata below Aptian evaporites. In this study, regional 2D seismic lines,...

Late Quaternary mud‐dominated, basin‐floor sedimentation of the Gulf of Corinth, Greece: Implications for deep‐water depositional processes and controls on syn‐rift sedimentation.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Basin Research. Oct2022, Vol. 34 Issue 5, p1567-1600. 34p.

Abstract: Syn‐rift deep‐water muds and mudstones preserve a relatively complete stratigraphic record of tectonic and climatic events. This paper investigates mud‐dominated deposits and stratigraphy using core from International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) Exp...

Spectral analyses, geology and petrology of the Gulf of Suez rift-related Oligo-Miocene basalts at Abu Zenima area, west central Sinai, Egypt

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Egyptian Journal of Remote Sensing and Space Sciences, Vol 25, Iss 1, Pp 85-96 (2022)

Abstract: The initial phase of the Gulf of Suez rifting in the late Oligocene was accompanied by the eruption of continental basaltic magmas, which continued to the early Miocene. Within the rift zone at Abu Zenima area, west-central Sinai, several km-scale Olig...
