Saberi, Mohammad Reza; Johansen, Tor Arne; Sælen, Gunnar (Bentham Open, 2010)Chalks are pelagic carbonate sediments that are deposited in deep-water environments. Their elastic behaviour is controlled by a combination of depositional conditions and subsequent diagenesis. In this paper, we ...Peer reviewedJournal article
Sequential growth of deformation bands in carbonate grainstones in the hangingwall of an active growth fault: Implications for deformation mechanisms in different tectonic regimes Rotevatn, Atle; Thorsheim, Elin; Bastesen, Eivind; Fossmark, Heidi Synnøve Solli; Torabi, Anita; Sælen, Gunnar (Elsevier, 2016-09)Deformation bands in porous sandstones have been extensively studied for four decades, whereas comparatively less is known about deformation bands in porous carbonate rocks, particularly in extensional settings. Here, we ...Journal article
Sælen, Gunnar; Kristensen, Dorthe Klitgaard; Westerlund, Stig; Jansen, Eystein (Bentham Open, 2009)Well-preserved low-Mg calcite tests of modern benthic foraminifera from a depth transect off SW Norway show decreasing Sr/Ca with increasing water depth (r = –0.84). The Mg/Ca ratios also decrease with increasing water depth, ...Peer reviewedJournal article
