At mid- ocean ridge magma comes out of the rift, cools and hardens and forms new oceanic crust, new oceanic crust pushes old oceanic crust into a trench in an area known as a subduction zone Laurasia in the north.

The North Fiji Basin Geology, Structure, and Geodynamic Evolution. Abstract. As the result of intensive studies conducted by U.S., French, and Japanese scientific teams, the North Fiji Basin ridge, poorly known 10 years ago, is one of the most exhaustively investigated ridge axes of the world’s by: Peggy Ridge in the Lau Basin, passing north of Fiji.

The northeastern Lau Basin and the northern end ofthe Tonga arc are almost fully surveyed. The processed GLORIA data provides information on the structure, sediments, and tectonics ofthe region.

Although it provides answers to many problems, it also raises questions. The term "rift" was coined by Gregory () for the graben that now bears his name in the Kenyan portion of the East African rift system. The study of geology of rift basins began in the Rhine graben.

We have to remember that this project on the study of the rift system in the Pacific was initiated only four years ago.

The strategy chosen was to focus a systematic studies on a typical opening marginal basin, the North Fiji Basin, and of a typical recent or aborted tensional structure, the Vanuatu.

Discussion and conclusions: a sequence-stratigraphic model for rift basins. A typical rift sequence tends to start with relatively deeper water deposits at the base, overlying a flooding surface, which are the product of rapid subsidence and consequent transgression (Fig.

Experts in the field offer the first comprehensive review of the tectonics and magmatism of backarc basins, covering their initial rift stage to mature spreading. Complete with numerous illustrations, each of the twelve chapters focuses on a young, active backarc basin of the circum-Pacific-where volcano-tectonic processes are best studied because of their activity.5/5(1).

Rift basins have been increasingly the focus of research in tectonics, structural geology, and basin analysis. The reasons for this interest include: (1) Rift basins are found on all passive (Atlantic-type) continental margins and provide a record of the early stages of (super)continental breakup.

In geology, a rift is a linear zone where the lithosphere is being pulled apart and is an example of extensional tectonics. Typical rift features are a central linear downfaulted depression, called a graben, or more commonly a half-graben with normal.

In geology, a rift is caused by tectonic plates in the Earth's lithosphere moving apart.

Rifts are usually accompanied by orogeny (mountain building), volcanoes and earthquakes. The Great Rift Valley in East Africa is an example. Wikimedia Commons has media related to Rift (geology). Rift basins are tectonic features. Thus, a goal of any large-scale study involving rift basins should be a better understanding of the tectonic processes controlling basin formation and infilling.

The NSF-funded Newark Basin Coring Project (NBCP) demonstrated that it is possible to extract tectonic information from cores in rift basins.

The book represents a summary of key results of hydrocarbon exploration activities during the s and s in a number of rift segments in East Africa. Surface and subsurface analysis of the rift basins involved multifold seismic relfection data, gravity and magnetic data, deep and shallow well control, and geological analysis of outcrops.

focal mechanisms show that the rift faults bordering the Semuliki basin and the southern end of the Lake Albert rift valley are oriented nearly north-south or northeast-southwest.
