3D seismic imaging and nature of Seaward Dipping Reflections (SDRs) on rifted margins
New understanding of the geometry and nature of the main phase of volcanism offshore Norway 56 million years ago.
The main volume of breakup-related volcanic rocks are present in SDRs. However, only the upper part has been drilled (Vøring, SE Greenland) and thus the geology is not well constrained. New 3D seismic data can help us understand the volcanology better.
Methods and tasks include:
Map and characterize SDRs in 3D volume(s) on the Vøring Margin, tie to wells (642, NPD, and others), volcanological interpretation, synthetic seismogram modeling, and global comparison of Inner and Outer SDRs.
