    Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume Atlantic Rifts and Continental Margins fills a major information gap in the seismic documentation of the passive margins of the Atlantic basin. New techniques have stimulated recent improvements in conceptual models that integrate geological and geophysical methods for interpreting deep water. The geology of the Norwegian Sea began to form 60 million years ago in the early Cenozoic, as rifting led to the eruption of mafic oceanic crust, separating Scandinavia and er with the North Sea the Norwegian Sea has become highly researched since the s with the discovery of oil and natural gas in thick offshore sediments on top of the Norwegian continental shelf.

Generally, a wedge of marine and non-marine sediments reaches m thickness near the Atlantic Coastline. Continental breakup occurred along a line now occupied by the Ouachita Orogenic belt as divergence continued into Cambrian time. Rifting also appears to have occurred along the Atlantic seaboard along a line parallel to the modern Appalachians. The southeastern United States was bounded to the east and south by oceanic bodies of water.

Working Party ]. continental margin The broad, gentle pitch of the continental shelf gives way to the relatively steep continental slope.

The more gradual transition to the abyssal plain is a sediment-filled region called the continental rise. The continental shelf, slope, and rise are collectively called the continental margin.

The plateau is bounded to the east by the extremely steep Blake Escarpment, descending to 5, m water depths. To the west, a short continental slope rises to a continental shelf. This Blake Plateau morphology characterizes the margin east of Florida and north of the Bahamas.

The Atlantic and Gulf coasts are passive continental margins because they lack the high levels of earthquake, volcanic, and mountain-building forces characteristic of active continental margins (such as the current U.

West Coast) that are right at plate boundaries. Hudson Canyon, the major feature of the northern part of the Middle Atlantic EEZ, indents the continental shelf break for more than 30 km and is the largest submarine canyon on the eastern U.S.

continental margin (mosaics 4 and 5). It connects to the Hudson River via the Hudson Shelf Valley across the continental shelf.

A passive continental margin occurs where the transition from land to sea is not associated with a plate boundary. The east coast of the United States is a good example; the plate boundary is located along the mid Atlantic ridge, far from the coast.

Passive margins are less geologically active.

A total of 23 digital mosaics of a 2 degree by 2 degree (or smaller) area with a 50 meter pixel resolution were completed for the Atlantic Continental Margin. Twenty-one of the individual mosaics were later combined to produce an overview of the Atlantic Continental Margin.

The Atlantic continental margin off Portugal and Spain is unique. [citation needed] In the zone between continental crust and oceanic crust there is a km wide zone of exhumed continental mantle. During the rift splitting Newfoundland from Iberia there was very little vulcanism and the rift was starved of.

Abstract. Continental margins can be characterized as of “Atlantic” or “Pacific” type, essentially depending on whether they have experienced a relatively long period of stability, in which case they are called Atlantic type, or whether they have suffered active tectonism during latter geological times, in which case they are assigned to the Pacific by: In order to emphasize the general interest of the book, we finally retain the following title: Continental Evolution: The Geology of Morocco.
