On the basis of new geophysical data acquired by the Federal Institute of Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) and the Polar Marine Geological Research Expedition (PMGRE) as well as existing data new geophysical maps were compiled for the Lazarev Sea and the Riiser-Larsen Sea between 10°W and 25°E. The new results are: – The drastic change in the strike direction of the volcanic Explora Wedge between longitudes 10°W and 5°W is accompanied with a gradual change from one major wedge, i.e. the… 

Crustal structure and tectonic provinces of the Riiser-Larsen Sea area (East Antarctica): results of geophysical studies

About 16,000 km of multichannel seismic (MCS), gravity and magnetic data and 28 sonobuoys were acquired in the Riiser-Larsen Sea Basin and across the Gunnerus and Astrid Ridges, to study their

Tie points for Gondwana reconstructions from a structural interpretation of the Mozambique Basin, East Africa and the Riiser-Larsen Sea, Antarctica

Abstract. Movements within early East Gondwana dispersal are poorly constrained, and there is debate about conjugate geologic structures and the timing and directions of the rifting and earliest

Basement and crustal structure of the Davis Sea region (East Antarctica): implications for tectonic setting and continent to oceanic boundary definition

This study is based on about 8400 km of MCS, magnetic and gravity data as well as 20 sonobuoys collected by the Russian Antarctic Expedition during 2003 and 2004 in the Davis Sea and adjacent areas

Reconstruction of the East Africa and Antarctica continental margins

The Early Jurassic separation of Antarctica from Africa plays an important role in our understanding of the dispersal of Gondwana and Pangea. Previous reconstruction models contain overlaps and gaps

Sedimentation and potential venting on the rifted continental margin of Dronning Maud Land

The relief of Dronning Maud Land (DML), formed by Middle and Late Mesozoic tectonic activity, had a strong spatial control on the early fluvial and subsequent glacial erosion and deposition. The

Growth and dispersal of a southeast African large igneous province

The Mozambique Ridge (MOZR) and the Agulhas Plateau (AP) are prominent bathymetrically elevated rises off south-eastern Africa connected by a rise of less bathymetric expression. Intuitively, this



The development of the crust off Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica

Abstract The southern Astrid Ridge and the Gunnerus Ridge together with the Kainan Maru Seamount are continental fragments which delimit the oceanic crust of the Riiser-Larsen Sea off Dronning Maud

Underlying fracture zone nature of Astrid Ridge off Antarctica's Queen Maud Land

New geophysical data are used to refine the extent and setting of Astrid Ridge, a volcanic edifice lying off the Princess Astrid Coast section (5°E to 20°E) of Queen Maud Land in Antarctica. New

Geology and structure of the Astrid Ridge, Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica

Bathymetric (458 line km), Seismic reflection, higher energy sparker source (405 line km) and magnetic (452 line km) studies of the Astrid ridge, a prominent broad bathymetric feature in water depths

Reconstruction of Madagascar and Africa: evidence from the Davie Fracture Zone and Western Somali Basin

New seismic reflection, gravity, and magnetic data from offshore East Africa allow the Davie Fracture Zone to be traced from ∼11°S to its intersection with the Kenyan coast at ∼2°S, constraining the


A high-resolution seafloor spreading history of the South Atlantic since chron C34 is constrained by a combination of Seasat altimeter data and underway marine geophysical data. A set of 45 finite

On the Tectonic History and Origin of the Northeast Georgia Rise (Synthesis)

Northeast Georgia Rise is located on inferred oceanic crust that is considered Albian in age and to have formed during the separation of Africa and South America. Of the three sites (698, 699, and

A Jurassic to recent chronology

The biostratigraphic bases for Jurassic, Cretaceous, and Cenozoic time-scales are discussed extensively elsewhere (e.g., Gradstein, this volume; Van Hinte, 1976b; Hardenbol and Berg­ gren, 1978;

The Separation of Madagascar and Africa

Identification of a sequence of east-west trending magnetic anomalies of Mesozoic age in the western Somali Basin helps define the position of Madagascar in the Gondwana reconstruction. The anomalies
