By Webster Mohriak, Manik Talwani

Published by means of the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph Series.

Atlantic Rifts and Continental Margins fills an enormous details hole within the seismic documentation of the passive margins of the Atlantic basin. New recommendations have encouraged fresh advancements in conceptual types that combine geological and geophysical equipment for studying deep water areas. specialists speak about a whole spectrum of subject matters, together with the impact of Precambrian compressional tectonics historical past at the formation of continental margins, local gravity and magnetics, particular seismic interpretation, and state-of-the-art suggestions and strategies. This quantity may be of curiosity either to educational geoscientists operating in basin research and to these engaged in petroleum exploration.Content:
