Variations in Mid-Continent Rift magma volumes consistent with microplate evolution
(American Geophysical Union, 2013-04)
Modeling of gravity data along the ~1.1Ga failed Mid-Continent Rift System shows systematic patterns in magma volume between and along the rift's two arms. The volume of magma increases towards the Lake Superior region, ...
Mantle Flow Beneath Arabia Offset from the Opening Red Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 2011-02-16)
Continental rifting involves a poorly understood sequence of lithospheric stretching, volcanism, and mantle flow that evolves to seafloor spreading. We present new insight from inversion of seismic traveltimes and waveforms ...
