      Novel 3D sequence stratigraphic numerical model for syn-rift basins: Analysing architectural responses to eustasy, sedimentation and tectonics A 3D graphical surface that represents accommodation is produced by summing eustasy and tectonics and subtracting sedimentation.

        The Indian shield represents a vast repository of the Precambrian geological record. The Precambrian sedimentary basins were developed on four major Archaean nuclei (Dharwar, Bastar, Singhbhum and Aravalli–Bundelkhand; Fig. ) and are comparable to those of Australia, South Africa, Canada and Brazil in scale and importance for global studies of Cited by: 6. In all, sedimentary provinces (basins, foldbelts) were analyzed, classified, and graphically displayed on continental maps (,,). An elaborate system of symbols and colors shows the plate tectonic history of each province, the stratigraphic extent and thickness of the sedimentary fill, the type of basin-forming and basin-modifying tectonics, and the distribution of .

        The link between tectonics and associated surface processes in terms of erosion and sedimentation has been recognized as the critical feedback interaction influencing the final geometry of sedimentary basins, in particular relevant in extensional settings [e.g., Burov and Guillou‐Frottier, ; Burov and Poliakov, ].

Sedimentation and Tectonics in Rift Basins: Red Sea - Gulf of Aden presents new case studies and synthesises the results of recent research on the sedimentological evolution of the Red Sea - Gulf of Aden rift system.

This rift basin is generally regarded as the best natural geological laboratory in the world in which to study the processes of rift formation. Extensional rift systems have proven to be highly prospective petroleum provinces, especially in sedimentary basins where migration from a mature source rock occurred during the postrift phase of thermal subsidence following trap formation (e.g., Harding, ).It is now thought that rift basins on old passive continental margins (e.g., west Africa and Brazil) and intra-continental rift.

This rift basin is generally regarded as the best natural geological laboratory in the world in which to study the processes of rift : Tectonics of Sedimentary Basins: Recent Advances focuses on key topics or areas where the greatest strides forward have been made, while also providing on-line access to the comprehensive book.

Breakthroughs in new techniques are described in Section 1, including detrital zircon geochronology, cosmogenic nuclide dating. Of all the terrestrial settings, rift basins typically provide the greatest accommodation space, and consequently have some of the longest records of continental sedimentation.

These records are a product of a complex interplay between several factors that include geological structure and tectonic activity, volcanism, climate and its temporal.

In geology, a rift is a linear zone where the lithosphere is being pulled apart and is an example of extensional tectonics. Typical rift features are a central linear downfaulted depression, called a graben, or more commonly a half-graben with normal faulting and rift-flank uplifts mainly on one side.

[citation needed] Where rifts remain above sea level they form a rift valley, which may be.

This rift basin is generally regarded as the best natural geological laboratory in the world in which to study the processes of rift : Copertina rigida. As rifting wanes the rift fills, and fluvial sedimentation predominates, or in a passive margin, the basins enter into an extensional sag and/or postrift thermal sag phases when shallow-marine to deep-marine sediments infill and bury the former half grabens as sedimentation catches up and exceeds basin subsidence.

This chapter volume is small enough to focus on the interplay among tectonics, sedimentation, and petroleum systems. Yet it is big enough to cover the diversity of structural styles in important petroliferous sedimentary basins around the globe, including those in west Africa, east Africa, east Brazil, east United States of America, Gulf of.

Stratigraphic and sedimentological models of rift basins D.W.J. Tectonics of Sedimentary Basins: Recent Advances focuses on key topics or areas where the greatest strides forward have been made, while also providing on-line access to the comprehensive book. Breakthroughs in new techniques are described in Section 1, including detrital zircon geochronology, cosmogenic nuclide dating, magnetostratigraphy 2/5(1).Rift basins have been increasingly the focus of research in tectonics, structural geology, and basin analysis.

The reasons for this interest include: (1) Rift basins are found on all passive (Atlantic-type) continental margins and provide a record of the early stages of (super)continental breakup.Plate Tectonics and Sedimentation: Where do sediments accumulate?

How and why do continents break-up and new ocean basins form? • what are the principal steps involved? • where do sediments tend to accumulate and what types of sediments • how long does it take for a new ocean basin to form?

• how is oceanic crust formed?
