High-resolution seismic data are powerful tools that can help the offshore industries to better understand the nature of the shallow subsurface and plan the development of vulnerable infrastructure.
High-resolution 3D P-Cable is a useful tool for imaging glacial landforms. The seismic data allow to study the link between seabed morphology and underlying geology. A buried shear margin moraine was imaged, and buried glacial horizons can be mapped at MBE-quality using the P-Cable technology . Meter-scale glacial deposits can be imaged using seismic attribute maps.
Applications are invited for 15 PhD student positions for 36 months to be funded by the Marie-Sklodowska-Curie European Training Network “SALTGIANT – Understanding the Mediterranean Salt Giant” within the Horizon 2020 Programme of the European Commission.
Large amounts of methane are stored in continental margins as gas hydrates. They are stable under high pressure and low temperature, but react sensitively to environmental changes. Bottom water temperature and sea level changes were considered as main contributors to gas hydrate dynamics after the last glaciation. However, here we show with numerical simulations that pulses of increased sedimentation dominantly controlled hydrate stability during the end of the last glaciation offshore mid-Norway.
