Subject:

Processes of crustal/lithospheric thinning during the formation of rifted margins

Objectives:

This study is based on the observation, interpretation and quantification of necking processes occurring at different rifted margins with different thermal, structural and compositional inheritance. The aim is to describe and quantify the major crustal thinning processes occurring at the transition between the proximal and the distal margins, understand the crustal and stratigraphic architecture and, if present, the link to magmatic additions forming during crustal necking.
