Structure and emplacement of mud volcano systems in the South Caspian Basin
The term “mud volcano system” is coined to describe the set of structures associated with a constructional edifice (mud volcano) and feeder complex that connects the volcano to its sourceExpand

Knickpoint migration in submarine channels in response to fold growth, western Niger Delta
Abstract Several knickpoints have been identified along the present-day thalweg of a sinuous submarine channel–levee system (CLS) on the slope of the western Niger Delta using 3D seismic data. TheExpand

Post-breakup compression of a passive margin and its impact on hydrocarbon prospectivity: An example from the Tertiary of the Faeroe–Shetland Basin, United Kingdom
The FaeroeShetland Basin is part of a passive continental margin that formed as a result of multiphase extension associated with North Atlantic rifting during the Mesozoic and Paleocene. Breakup wasExpand
