  1. 1. New Techniques for Estimation of Source Parameters : Applications to Airborne Gravity and Pseudo-Gravity Gradient Tensors

    Author : Majid Beiki; Laust Pedersen; Mehrdad Bastani; Mark Pilkington; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Gravity gradient tensor; pseudo-gravity; magnetic field; eigenvector analysis; least squares algorithm; strike direction; source parameter estimation; analytic signal; Euler deconvolution; joint inversion; infinite dike model; geological contact model; Solid earth physics; Fasta jordens fysik; Geofysik med inriktning mot fasta jordens fysik; Geophysics with specialization in Solid Earth Physics;

    Abstract : Gravity gradient tensor (GGT) data contains the second derivatives of the Earth’s gravitational potential in three orthogonal directions. GGT data can be measured either using land, airborne, marine or space platforms. READ MORE

  2. 2. Seismotectonics and lithospheric structure of Costa Rica

    Author : Ronnie Quintero; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Geofysik med inriktning mot seismologi; Geophysics with specialization in Seismology;

    Abstract : The interaction of different tectonic features on a short-distance scale of 100's of km produces the complexity of the Costa Rica region. The intraplate Caribbean earthquake activity of shallow-depth nature is mainly concentrated along an E-W axis in the central part of the country. READ MORE

  3. 3. Crustal stress studies using microearthquakes and boreholes

    Author : Björn Lund; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Geofysik med inriktning mot fasta jordens fysik; Geophysics with specialization in Solid Earth Physics;

    Abstract : The state of stress in the crust is essential for the understanding of geodynamic processes such as the transmission of plate driving forces through the lithosphere and the triggering of earthquakes. This thesis describes the development and application of new methods for the estimation of crustal stresses. READ MORE

  4. 4. Geophysical and petrophysical characterisation of the Tjårrojåkka IOCG mineralisation, Sweden

    Author : Alessandro Sandrin; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Tillämpad geofysik; Applied Geophysics;

    Abstract : A geophysical-petrophysical study has been performed in an area WSW of the city of Kiruna, northern Sweden. Particular attention has been dedicated to the Tjårrojåkka iron oxide copper gold (IOCG) mineralisations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Superimposition of Contractional Structures in Models and Nature

    Author : Hongling Deng; Hemin Koyi; Sudipta Sengupta; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; superimposition; progressive deformation; multiple phases; coaxial; non-coaxial; analogue modelling; fold-and-thrust belts; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot mineralogi; petrologi och tektonik; Earth Science with specialization in Mineral Chemistry; Petrology and Tectonics;

    Abstract : Superimposition of contractional structures is widely observed in different scales in the world. Superimposed structures form due to different processes: change in strain accommodation from one type of structure to another during a single progressive shortening; successive coaxial shortening phases separated by an unconformity; superimposition of different non-coaxial shortening phases.
