• 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 ...
    • From Caledonian collapse to North Sea Rift: The extended history of a metamorphic core complex 

      Wiest, Johannes; Wrona, Thilo; Bauck, Marit Stokke; Fossen, Haakon; Gawthorpe, Rob; Osmundsen, Per Terje; Faleide, Jan Inge (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Extensional systems evolve through different stages due to changes in the rheological state of the lithosphere. It is crucial to distinguish ductile structures formed before and during rifting, as both cases have important ...
    • Mesozoic-Cenozoic regional stress field evolution in Svalbard 

      Maher, Harmon; Senger, Kim; Braathen, Alvar; Mulrooney, Mark Joseph; Smyrak-Sikora, Aleksandra; Osmundsen, Per Terje; Ogata, Kei (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Cooling fracture orientations in diabase sills associated with the Cretaceous High Arctic Large Igneous Province and syn‐sedimentary Triassic faults help constrain a model for Svalbard's (NE Barents Shelf) Mesozoic stress ...
