  1. 1. 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. 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.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Mylonitzonen (MZ) är en kraftigt framträdande rörelsezon i den sydvästra Baltiska urbergskölden (sydvästra Skandinavien) som löper från Varberg i söder till trakterna av Eidsvol (Norge) i norr. Den sammanfogar urbergsblock av olika ålder och ursprung vilka även har skilda geologiska utvecklingshistorier. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Under kvartärtiden (de senaste 2,6 miljoner åren) har istider (glacialer) och mellanistider (interglacialer) avlös varandra. Mellanistider är perioder (ca 10 000 år) mellan istider (ca 100 000 år), vilket innebär att istid varit det normala under kvartärtiden och att Holocene, den istid vi nu lever i, endast representerar ett kortare intervall.
