Reconnaissance report and preliminary ground motion simulation of the 12 May 2008 Wenchuan earthquake
The Mw = 8.0Wenchuan earthquake of May 12, 2008, caused destruction over a wide area. The earthquake cost more than 69,000 lives and the damage is reported to have left more than 5 million people homeless. It is estimated ...
Drumlin relief is a key parameter for testing predictions of models of drumlin formation. Although this metric is commonly described in textbooks as being of the order of a fewtens ofmetres, our critical review of the ...
The chalk depositional system in the Central Graben – concepts of regional geology, sedimentology and stratigraphy
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-08)
Improved quantitative calibration of rock physics models
(Geological Society, 2011-11)
In reservoir characterization, rock-physics models provide the link between seismic observables (density, compressional and shear wavespeeds) and reservoir parameters such as porosity, lithology and fluid saturation. ...
Evaluating balanced section restoration with thermochronology data: A case study from the Central Pyrenees
(American Geophysical Union, 2014-05-06)
We present a new method that can be used to quantitatively evaluate the consistency between balanced section restorations and thermochronological data sets from orogenic belts. We have applied our method to a crustal-scale ...
The onset of flysch sedimentation in the Kaoko Belt (NW Namibia) – Implications for the pre-collisional evolution of the Kaoko–Dom Feliciano–Gariep orogen
Detrital zircon provenance study of a metamorphosed sedimentary succession in the eastern part of the Kaoko Belt in Namibia has revealed two distinct sources for the Neoproterozoic sedimentation along the southwestern Congo ...
Glacigenic sedimentation pulses triggered postglacial gas hydrate dissociation
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018-02-12)
Sediment cores from the south-eastern Nordic Seas simultaneously archive the variability of the Fennoscandian Ice Sheet (FIS), the British-Irish Ice Sheet (BIIS) and the regional oceanic conditions. This study aims to ...
Holocene glacier variability and Neoglacial hydroclimate at Ålfotbreen, western Norway
Glaciers and small ice caps respond rapidly to climate perturbations (mainly winter precipitation, and summer temperature), and the mass-balance of glaciers located in western Norway is governed mainly by winter precipitation ...
Holocene multi-proxy environmental reconstruction from lake Hakluytvatnet, Amsterdamøya Island, Svalbard (79.5°N)
High resolution proxy records of past climate are sparse in the Arctic due to low organic production that restricts the use of radiocarbon dating and challenging logistics that make data collection difficult. Here, we ...
Crustal structure and origin of the Eggvin Bank west of Jan Mayen, NE Atlantic
(American Geophysical Union, 2017-01)
The Eggvin Bank, located between the Jan Mayen Island and Greenland, is an unusually shallow area containing several submarine volcanic peaks, confined by two transforms on the Northern Kolbeinsey Ridge (NKR). We represent ...
