  • Gaina, Carmen; Nasuti, Aziz; Kimbell, Geoffrey S; Blischke, Anett (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    An updated magnetic anomaly grid of the NE Atlantic and an improved database of magnetic anomaly and fracture zone identifications allow the kinematic history of this region to be revisited. At break-up time, continental ...
  • Døssing, Arne; Gaina, Carmen; Brozena, J.M. (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    The genesis of the Amerasia Basin in the Arctic Ocean has been difficult to discern due to overprint of the Cretaceous High‐Arctic Large Igneous Province (HALIP). Based on detailed analysis of bathymetry data, new Arctic ...
  • Domeier, Mathew; Shephard, Grace; Jakob, Johannes; Gaina, Carmen; Doubrovine, Pavel; Torsvik, Trond Helge (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    The notorious ~60° bend separating the Hawaiian and Emperor chains marked a prominent change in the motion of the Pacific plate at ~47 Ma (million years ago), but the origin of that change remains an outstanding controversy ...
  • Blischke, A; Gaina, Carmen; Hopper, J.R.; Péron-Pinvidic, Gwenn; Brandsdóttir, Bryndís; Guarnieri, P; Erlendsson, Ögmundur; Gunnarsson, K. (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    We present a revised tectonostratigraphy of the Jan Mayen microcontinent (JMMC) and its southern extent, with the focus on its relationship to the Greenland–Iceland–Faroe Ridge area and the Faroe–Iceland Fracture Zone. The ...
  • Péron-Pinvidic, Gwenn; Hopper, John R.; Stoker, Martyn; Gaina, Carmen; Funck, Thomas; Árting, Uni Egholm; Doornenbal, Johannes Cornelis (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    The NE Atlantic region and its continental margins (Fig. 1) hold unique information for understanding many aspects of Earth science, from global geodynamics to palaeoceanography and global environmental change. It also ...
  • Stoker, Martyn S.; Stewart, Margaret A.; Shannon, Patrick M.; Bjerager, Morten; Nielsen, Tove; Blischke, Anett; Hjelstuen, Berit Oline Blihovde; Gaina, Carmen; Mcdermott, Kenneth G.; Ólavsdóttir, Jana (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    This study describes the distribution and stratigraphic range of the Upper Palaeozoic–Mesozoic succession in the NE Atlantic region, and is correlated between conjugate margins and along the axis of the NE Atlantic rift ...
  • Torsvik, Trond Helge; Doubrovine, Pavel; Steinberger, Bernhard; Gaina, Carmen; Spakman, Wim; Domeier, Mathew (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    A conspicuous 60° bend of the Hawaiian-Emperor Chain in the north-western Pacific Ocean has variously been interpreted as the result of an abrupt Pacific plate motion change in the Eocene (∼47 Ma), a rapid southward drift ...
  • Torsvik, Trond Helge; Van der Voo, Rob; Preeden, Ulla; Mac Niocaill, Conall; Steinberger, Bernard; Van Hinsbergen, Douwe; Domeier, Mathew; Gaina, Carmen; Tohver, Eric; Meert, Joseph G.; McCausland, Phil J. A.; Cocks, Robin L. M.; Dubrovin, Pavel (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / AcceptedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2012)
    A significant number of new palaeomagnetic poles have become available since the last time a compilation was made (assembled in 2005, published in 2008) to indicate to us that a new and significantly expanded set of tables ...
  • Torsvik, Trond Helge; Steinberger, Bernard; Gurnis, M; Gaina, Carmen (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / SubmittedVersion, 2010)
    We have developed an improved model of global digital palaeo-plate boundaries and plate motion to describe the distribution and history of plates since the Late Jurassic. From this history we computed net lithospheric ...
  • Torsvik, Trond Helge; Amundsen, Hans; Hartz, Ebbe Hvidegård; Corfu, Fernando; Kusznir, Nick; Gaina, Carmen; Dubrovin, Pavel; Steinberger, Bernard; Ashwal, Lewis D.; Jamtveit, Bjørn (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / AcceptedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    The Laccadive–Chagos Ridge and Southern Mascarene Plateau in the north-central and western Indian Ocean, respectively, are thought to be volcanic chains formed above the Réunion mantle plume1 over the past 65.5 million ...
  • Gaina, Carmen; Blischke, Anett; Geissler, Wolfram H.; Kimbell, Geoffrey S; Erlendsson, Ögmundur (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    A new regional compilation of seamount-like oceanic igneous features (SOIFs) in the NE Atlantic points to three distinct oceanic areas of abundant seamount clusters. Seamounts on oceanic crust dated 54–50 Ma are formed on ...
  • Geissler, Wolfram H.; Gaina, Carmen; Hopper, John R.; Funck, Thomas; Blischke, Anett; Árting, Uni Egholm; Á Horni, Jim; Péron-Pinvidic, Gwenn; Abdelmalak, Mohamed Mansour (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    The Early Eocene continental break-up between the NE Greenland and the mid-Norwegian–SW Barents Sea margins was associated with voluminous magmatism and led to the emplacement of massive volcanic complexes including wedges ...
