  1. 1. Cryptic Orogeny uplift of the Al Hajar Mountains at an alleged passive margin

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Geological Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Reuben Johannes Hansman; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; uplift; mountains; structural; low-temperature; thermochronology; dating; fission-track; U-Th He; U-Pb; calcite; structure-from-motion; photogrammetry; UAV; trishear; fault-propagation; Hafit; Al Hajar Mountains; United Arab Emirates; Oman; Geology; geologi;

    Abstract : Mountains evolve and grow because of the large forces that occur from the collision of tectonic plates. Plate boundaries change and move through time, and regions that were once stable, shallow-marine environments can be dragged into subduction zones and get transformed into vast mountain ranges.

  2. 2. Constraining the Uplift History of the Al Hajar Mountains, Oman

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Geological Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Reuben Hansman; Stockholms universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; oman; Al Hajar; mountain; uplift; orogeny; tectonics; structural; geology; Geology; geologi;

    Abstract : Mountain building is the result of large compressional forces in the Earth’s crust where two tectonic plates collide. This is why mountains only form at plate boundaries, of which the Al Hajar Mountains in Oman and the United Arab Emirates is thought to be an example of. READ MORE

  3. 3. Tectonic History and Present-Day Deformation in the Zagros Fold-Thrust Belt

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Khaled Hessami; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Earth sciences; Zagros; Orogeny; Unconformities; Iran; Growth folds; Middel East; Tectonics; Models; GPS; basement; Seismicity; Geovetenskap; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap; mineralogi; petrologi och tektonik; Mineral Chemistry; Petrology and Tectonics;

    Abstract : This thesis uses various approaches such as observation of satellite images, field investigations, analogue modeling and GPS measurements to constrain deformation of the basement and sedimentary cover of the Zagros fold-thrust belt in time and space.Focal mechanism solutions of most earthquakes indicate that deformation in the Zagros basement is due to shortening and thickening through numerous thrust faults.

  4. 4. Seismic Studies of Paleozoic Orogens in SW Iberia and the Middle Urals

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Artem Kashubin; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Reflection seismics; Traveltime tomography; Uralian orogeny; Variscan orogeny; Crustal structure; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Other physics Geophysics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Övrig fysik Geofysik;

    Abstract : Controlled source seismic methods were employed in this study to investigate the reflectivity and velocity structure of two Hercynian orogens – the Uralides and Variscides. Conventional common depth point (CDP) sections from five reflection seismic campaigns and a velocity model obtained from tomographic inversion of wide-angle observations were the main datasets studied from the Middle Urals.

  5. 5. Assembly of the Caledonian Orogenic Wedge, Jämtland, Sweden

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Geological Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Hagen Bender; Stockholms universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; collisional orogeny; Scandinavian Caledonides; Seve Nappe Complex; Köli Nappe Complex; in-sequence thrusting; out-of-sequence thrusting; imbrication; nappe stacking; orogenic wedge assembly; Rb–Sr geochronology; rock magnetism; anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility; Geology; geologi;

    Abstract : Collisional orogeny creates the largest mountain belts on Earth. The Caledonides of Scandinavia are a deeply eroded, ancient mountain belt, which today exposes a deep section through the former orogenic interior. READ MORE
