ntal crust was thinned. Although best exemplified by Scandinavia, the same interactions may be ongoing at many other passive margins around the world. Based on their observations, the Redfield and Osmundsen offer a hypothesis that links the onshore and offshore evolution of passive margins under a simple model invoking onshore erosion, offshore deposition, and the consequent isostatic adjustment of the continental edge to the progressively and continually changing vertical load. Because many passive margins host large hydrocarbon reservoirs and potential reserves, the hypothesis has significant implications for global petroleum systems. It also helps advance the understanding of how stretched continental lithosphere evolves through time, of why Norwegian large volume rockslide hazards come to exist, and perhaps may even clarify where the process of subduction eventually elects to commence.


Far-traveled latest Cretaceous-Paleocene conglomerates of the Southern Rocky Mountains, USA: Record of transient Laramide tectonism
Paul L. Heller et al., Dept. of Geology and Geophysics, University of Wyoming, Laramie, Wyoming 82071, USA. Posted online 21 November 2012; http://dx.doi.org/10.1130/B30699.1

A solitary, widespread conglomerate deposited between 70 and 60 million years ago is found in various basins of Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico, USA. The river-laid deposits are unusual compared to most conglomerates associated with faulted mountain ranges because they are stratigraphically quite thin, but they are broadly found over many tens of kilometers across the Uinta, Piceance Creek, and San Juan basins and in southwest Utah. Each of the units came from separate source areas across the region. Similar widespread conglomerate units of this age are apparently absent in other Rocky Mountain basins. The distribution, timing, and dispersion directions of these far-travelle
