Overview


This volume presents an up-to-date account of the development of the North Sea Rift system and its associated sedimentary basins, with contributions by leading researchers. The work examines tectonic and palaeogeographic development, using evidence from proposed crustal models, and discusses the geological mechanism of rifting and its influence on the structure and patterns of sedimentation in the basins and their bearing on the potential for oil and gas accumulation. A comprehensive gravity map is included.
