[1] Back‐arc basin evolution is driven by processes active at the main subduction zone typically assuming the transition from an extensional back‐arc, during the retreat of a mature slab, to a contractional basin, during high‐strain collisional processes. Such a transition is observed in the Black Sea, where the accurate quantification of shortening effects(More)
[1] In front of the SE Carpathians Bend a very deep basin (Focşani Depression) developed in Miocene to Recent times. An important part of its subsidence occurred after the main stages of thrusting in the Carpathians. Apparently, the basin lies in the ‘‘wrong’’ place and evolved in the ‘‘wrong’’ time. In this study, we constrain its architecture and(More)
The Transylvanian basin is a major sedimentary basin located in the eastern part of the European Alpine orogenic system. It has a sedimentary fill more than 5 km (up to 8 km in some small areas) thick of Upper Cretaceous to upper Miocene deposits. It represents the main gas-producing province in Romania and central, eastern Europe. In this article we(More)
The asymptotic velocity distribution of electrons ionized in half-cycle-pulse excitation of high Rydberg states (n=34), placed in a static electric field, is studied using electron velocity-map imaging. At weak half-cycle pulse strengths, the electrons escape over the saddle point in the potential. For strong half-cycle pulses, the electrons are emitted in(More)
Understanding the natural evolution of a river-delta-sea system is important to develop a strong scientific basis for efficient integrated management plans. The distribution of sediment fluxes is linked with the natural connection between sediment source areas situated in uplifting mountain chains and deposition in plains, deltas and, ultimately, in the(More)
