Salt tectonics at passive margins Geology versus models

Abstract. International audienceSalt tectonics at passive margins is currently interpreted as a gravity-driven process but according to two different types of models i) pure spreading only driven by differential sedimentary loading and ii) dominant gliding primarily due to margin tilt (slope instability).

Modeling of salt tectonics Paolo Massimi Academia.edu

Modeling of salt tectonics. Download. Switzerland Abstract In this work a general framework for the simulation of sedimentary basins in pres- ence of salt structures is addressed. Sediments and evaporites are modeled as non Newtonian fluids and the thermal effects induced by the presence of salt are taken into account. The computational

Active Salt Tectonics in the Needles District, Canyonlands

Abstract. The Needles District in Canyonlands National Park, Utah, is known for its well-exposed array of extensional faults, which are thought to be produced by gravity-driven extension and downward flexure of a thin sandstone plate into the Colorado River canyon in response to dissolution and flow of underlying evaporites (halite and gypsum).

Salt tectonics Revolvy

Salt tectonics is concerned with the geometries and processes associated with the presence of significant thicknesses of evaporites containing rock salt within a stratigraphic sequence of rocks. This is due both to the low density of salt, which does not increase with burial, and its low strength.

Structure and salt tectonics of Messinian evaporites in

Abstract. During the Oligocene to late Miocene, the Cilicia Basin evolved as a foreland basin in front of the Taurus Mountains thrust front. Over time, the regional eastern Mediterranean tectonics, the continual subsidence of the Cilicia Basin and the rapid progradational loading of the evaporite unit by sediments from the northeast end of the Cilicia Basin (the Adana Basin) have resulted in

Abstract Las Vegas Wash drains the Las Vegas Basin in Nevada by capturing a series of tributaries and ending in Lake Mead and is being developed into an urban wetland. The soils are part of the Land series and contain high concentrations of pedogenic salts because of local sulfate-rich parent materials and high evapotranspiration rates.

Recent Advances in the Understanding of the Salt Tectonic

Abstract The Eastern Flank part of the South Oman Salt Basin of the Sultanate of Oman is an important area for Oman's overall oil production. The fields are largely controlled by deep seated reactivated Neoproterozoic faults and halokinesis of the Infra-Cambrian Ara Group responsible for rich varieties of complex structural styles which have direct impact on field performance and development.
