Team develops new, inexpensive method for understanding earthquake topography
Date:9/3/2014

e are looking for the relation between the hot material produced by the hotspot and the Gulf of Aden ridges, based on the study of seismical waves. We provide evidence that deep material undergoes a channelized flow from Afar hotspot toward the east along the oceanic ridges.

Kinematics of the Neogene Terror Rift: Constraints from calcite twinning strains in the ANDRILL McMurdo Ice Shelf (AND-1B) core, Victoria Land Basin, Antarctica

Timothy S. Paulsen et al., Dept. of Geology, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, 800 Algoma Boulevard, Oshkosh, Wisconsin 54901, USA. Posted online 18 Aug. 2014; http://dx.doi.org/10.1130/GES01002.1. Themed issue: The ANDRILL McMurdo Ice Shelf (MIS) and Southern McMurdo Sound (SMS) Drilling Projects.

The Antarctic plate formed when the Gondwana supercontinent broke up, which was largely completed by ~80 million years ago. Rifting episodes have happened repeatedly within the plate since that time, but the associated intraplate motions are poorly known. These motions are important, however, for understanding plate break-up mechanisms and Mesozoic to Cenozoic global plate motions. Paulsen et al. present new data constraining the intraplate motions during the young "Terror Rift" deformation from 13.6 to 4.3 million years ago. Shortening and extension directions were measured from mechanical twins in calcite filling fractures cutting sedimentary and volcanic rocks recovered by the ANDRILL (ANtarctic geologic DRILLing) McMurdo Ice Shelf (MIS) AND-1B drill core. Results show dominant subvertical shortening, a northwest-southeast stretching direction, and no significant horizontal shortening. Vertical shortening was induced by sedimentary and ice sheet loading and horizontal stretching is most likely related to extension orthogonal to Terror Rift, but could also be due to partitioning of deformation in an extensional regime that includes a co
