    The Earth’s Crust. The main geological difference between the continents and the deep oceans is the nature of the Earth’s crust. In geology, one speaks of continental crust as opposed to oceanic continental crust is very thick (20–40 km) and relatively light, while oceanic crust is thin (5–15 km) and considerably denser, as shown in figures 1 and 2. The Barents Sea is an epicontinental sea covering approximately million km2 (Worsley, ). The continental shelf, which the Barents Sea is situated on, is bounded to the north by Franz Josef’s Land and Svalbard archipelago and to the south by the Kola Peninsula and the Norwegian coast.

    The Barents Sea was originally formed from two major continental collisions: the Caledonian orogeny, in which the Baltica and Laurentia collided to form Laurasia, and a subsequent collision between Laurasia and Western of its geological history is dominated by extensional tectonics, caused by the collapse of the Caledonian and Uralian orogenic belts and the break-up of countries: Norway and Russia. The occurrence of evaporitic intervals in sedimentary basins and their subsequent mobilization play an important role in the evolution of the petroleum system [1,2].Salt mobilization and diapirism control the spatial and temporal distribution of suprasalt reservoirs and source rocks [3,4,5], and they influence the style and timing of stratigraphic and structural : Andrés Cedeño, Luis Alberto Rojo, Néstor Cardozo, Luis Centeno, Alejandro Escalona.

      Tectonic inversion of rift basins is most commonly reported in the literature to occur after rifting has ceased. In contrast, we present evidence for synrift, localized tectonic inversion from the Loppa High area, southwestern Barents Sea and present a model for the formation of inversion structures as a result of differential by: Eurasian orogens and Arctic tectonics: an overview / V.

Carbonate production is centered around two main carbonate “factories.” The first one, kelp forests growing on the shallowest parts of the platform are the main source area for barnacle sands (i.e., Balanus crenatus).

The book has been written by Niels Henriksen, former head of the Department of Geological Mapping at the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS). For more than 30 years he has led scientific expeditions to all parts of Greenland and has an intimate knowledge of Greenland's geology and nature.

The absence of intense mid‐Carboniferous faulting of the Olga Basin region is in sharp contrast to the evolution of the southern and western Barents Sea. Widespread mid‐Carboniferous rifting resulted in subsidence of the Nordkapp and Hammerfest Basins and initiated the Fingerdjupet Subbasin and Bjørnøya Basin (Anell et al.,).Cited by: 5.

The 5-year Circum-Arctic Lithosphere Evolution (CALE) program developed new constraints on the tectonic history of the central Amerasia basin of the Arctic Ocean. This volume is the final synthesis of the CALE program, which brought together an international team of scientists to develop integrated, multi-disciplinary understanding of the region.

Introduction. The Triassic succession on the Barents Shelf is currently of considerable importance for hydrocarbon exploration (Henriksen et al.,Lundschien et al., ).During the Triassic, the area formed part of a large epicontinental seaway in the northwestern corner of the supercontinent Pangaea (Worsley, ).This seaway was progressively infilled by prograding delta complexes Cited by: Tertiary structural evolution of the Beaufort Sea - Mackenzie Delta region, Arctic Canada ().
