About this book

Because of their great depth and distance from the shore, continental rises have been relatively insulated from geological explorations. Distinguished international experts offer new interpretations of continental-rise deposition at several different locations along the margins of the Atlantic Ocean in Geological Evolution of Atlantic Continental Rises. They provide findings generated by new measurement and imaging technology, complete with fold-out maps that display a panorama of erosional features for comparison with other ocean regions. New techniques for detecting and dating tectonic episodes that affect continental rise deposition will be especially useful to petroleum engineers involved in offshore oil exploration. Information is included on the role of massive slides in forming continental-rise deposits and interaction of sedimentation on modern continental rises.
