Crustal structure and evolution of the Arctic Caledonides: Results fromcontrolled-source seismology
The continuation of the Caledonides into the Barents Sea has long been a subject of discussion, and two major orientations of the Caledonian deformation fronts have been suggested: NNW-SSE striking and NE-SW striking. A ...
Clinoform systems: Review and dynamic classification scheme for shorelines, subaqueous deltas, shelf edges and continental margins
Clinoforms are inclined and normally basinward-dipping horizons developed over a range of spatial and temporal scales in both siliciclastic and carbonatic systems. The study of clinoform successions underpins sequence ...
Ice-stream dynamics of the SW Barents Sea revealed by high-resolution 3D seismic imaging of glacial deposits in the Hoop area
Recent developments in seismic acquisition systems and seismic data visualization have contributed to improve the imaging of seismic geomorphologies over a broad range of topics. This study focuses on a new high-resolution ...
Grain Deformation Processes in Porous Quartz Sandstones – Insight from the Clusters of Cataclastic Deformation Bands
(EDP Sciences, 2017)
Porous sandstones represent classical reservoirs for water or hydrocarbons. Deformation in such granular material is due to tectonic events and occurs through the process of cataclasis, implying the crushing of the grains ...
Identification and quantification of soundscape components in the Marginal Ice Zone
(Acoustical Society of America, 2016)
Acoustic experiments using an integrated ice station were carried out during August 2012 and September 2013 in the Marginal Ice Zone (MIZ) of Fram Strait. The two experiments lasted four days each and collected under-ice ...
Measured and modeled acoustic propagation underneath the rough Arctic sea-ice
(Acoustical Society of America, 2017-09)
A characteristic surface duct beneath the sea-ice in the Marginal Ice Zone causes acoustic waves to be trapped and continuously interact with the sea-ice. The reflectivity of the sea-ice depends on the thickness, the ...
