• 3-D seismic images of an extensive igneous sill in the lower crust 

      Wrona, Thilo; Magee, Craig; Fossen, Haakon; Gawthorpe, Rob; Bell, Rebecca E.; Jackson, Christopher Aiden Lee; Faleide, Jan Inge (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-05-31)
      When continents rift, magmatism can produce large volumes of melt that migrate upwards from deep below the Earth’s surface. To understand how magmatism impacts rifting, it is critical to understand how much melt is generated ...
    • Basement structure and its influence on the structural configuration of the northern North Sea rift 

      Fazli Khani, Hamed; Fossen, Haakon; Gawthorpe, Robert; Faleide, Jan Inge; Bell, Rebecca E. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-06)
      The northern North Sea rift basin developed on a heterogeneous crust comprising structures inherited from the Caledonian orogeny and Devonian postorogenic extension. Integrating two‐dimensional regional seismic reflection ...
    • Complex strain partitioning and heterogeneous extension rates during early rifting in the East Shetland Basin, northern North Sea 

      Claringbould, Johan S; Bell, Rebecca E.; Jackson, Christopher A.L.; Gawthorpe, Robert; Odinsen, Tore (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The early stages of continental rifting are accommodated by the growth of upper crustal normal fault systems that are distributed relatively evenly across the rift width. Numerous fault systems define fault arrays, the ...
    • The influence of structural inheritance and multiphase extension on rift development, the northern North Sea 

      Phillips, Thomas B.; Fazlikhani, Hamed; Gawthorpe, Rob; Fossen, Haakon; Jackson, Christopher Aiden Lee; Bell, Rebecca E.; Faleide, Jan Inge; Rotevatn, Atle (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-11-08)
      The northern North Sea rift evolved through multiple rift phases within a highly heterogeneous crystalline basement. The geometry and evolution of syn‐rift depocenters during this multiphase evolution and the mechanisms ...
    • Straight from the source's mouth: controls on field-constrained sediment export across the entire active Corinth Rift, central Greece 

      Watkins, Stephen; Whittaker, Alexander C.; Bell, Rebecca E.; Brooke, Sam; Ganti, Vamsi; Gawthorpe, Robert; McNeill, Lisa C.; Nixon, Casey William (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The volume and grain‐size of sediment supplied from catchments fundamentally control basin stratigraphy. Despite their importance, few studies have constrained sediment budgets and grain‐size exported into an active rift ...
    • Strain migration during multiphase extension, Stord Basin, northern North Sea rift 

      Fazlikhani, Hamed; Aagotnes, Synne; Refvem, Marte; Hamilton-Wright, James; Bell, Rebecca E.; Fossen, Haakon; Gawthorpe, Rob; Jackson, Christopher A.-L.; Rotevatn, Atle (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      In regions experiencing multiple phases of extension, rift‐related strain can vary along and across the basin during and between each phase, and the location of maximum extension can differ between the rift phase. Despite ...
    • Structural architecture and composition of crystalline basement offshore west Norway 

      Lenhart, Antje; Jackson, Christopher AL; Bell, Rebecca E.; Duffy, Oliver B.; Gawthorpe, Rob; Fossen, Haakon (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-02-05)
      Numerous studies have investigated the geodynamic history and lithological composition of the Proterozoic basement, Caledonian nappes, and Devonian extensional basins and shear zones onshore west Norway. However, the ...
