Sedimentology and palynology of the Lower Cretaceous succession of central Spitsbergen: integration of subsurface and outcrop data
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-27)
The Lower Cretaceous succession in Svalbard is commonly considered as an important analogue to age-equivalent strata on the Barents Shelf which are sporadically targeted by exploration wells. In this study, the stratigraphic and genetic relationship between the Rurikfjellet (open marine), Helvetiafjellet (paralic) and Carolinefjellet (open marine) formations of the Lower Cretaceous succession in ...
Progradation rates measured at modern river outlets: A first-order constraint on the pace of deltaic deposition
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-29)
We present a compilation of modern shoreline progradation rates measured close to river outlets entering deltaic coastlines, and we discuss how these observations relate to the overall evolution of both modern and ancient deltaic coastlines. We analyzed Landsat‐derived satellite images to identify plan view changes in the subaerial morphology of 331 modern deltaic coastlines. Our rate compilation ...
