Although oceanic spreading is often perpendicular to the ridge trends, in some cases the angle between these two directions can be significantly less than 90° (40°–50°). This occurs because of either a bend of the ridge trend or a change of the spreading direction. We here describe oblique spreading in the Mohns Ridge, resulting in deformation partitioning between the valley walls, which are dominantly affected by strike-slip displacements, and the axial valley which is subject to nearly pure… CONTINUE READING
