Impact of normal faulting and pre‐rift salt tectonics on ...

Abstract Studies of salt‐influenced rift basins have focused on individual or basin‐scale fault system and/or salt‐related structure. In contrast, the large‐scale rift structure, namely rift segments and rift accommodation zones and the role of pre‐rift tectonics in controlling structural style and syn‐rift basin evolution have received less attention.

Rheology of rock salt for salt tectonics modeling ...

2016-10-5 · Numerical modeling of salt tectonics is a rapidly evolving field; however, the constitutive equations to model long-term rock salt rheology in nature still remain controversial. Firstly, we built a database about the strain rate versus the differential stress through collecting the data from salt creep experiments at a range of temperatures (20–200 °C) in laboratories. The aim is to collect ...

3D Numerical Modelling of Salt Tectonics | Earthdoc

3D Numerical Modelling of Salt Tectonics. Many factors have been suggested to affect the development of salt structures, including sedimentation, brittle sediment deformation, multiple tectonic events and basement topography. To unravel the relative importance of these processes, we performed high resolution 2D and 3D thermo-mechanical ...

Advances in salt tectonics: observations, applications ...

Salt tectonics involves processes associated with the flow of rock salt. These processes are both scientifically and economically important, because (1) when salt is present, it typically dominates the structural style, evolution and stratigraphic development of surrounding regions, providing a long time-scale, long length-scale record of ...

Extension and salt tectonics in the East Central Graben ...

1993-1-1 · Mesozoic structures in the East Central Graben were formed in an extensional tectonic environment by the complex interaction of deposition, basin extension, halokinesis and subsequent erosion. Detailed analysis of seismic data on the eastern flank of the Forties-Montrose High indicates that the Triassic section exhibits rafting: large fault blocks were translated, rotated and distorted on a ...

2016-11-7 · In the Sab'atayn Basin of Yemen hydrocarbons were generated from pre-salt Upper Jurassic source rocks during the Cenozoic and the salt provides the ultimate seal for the pre-salt and intra-salt traps. Therefore the proper understanding of salt tectonics is critical for ongoing hydrocarbon exploration efforts in the Sab'atayn Basin.
