Experimental and seismological constraints on the rheology, evolution, and alteration of the lithosphere at oceanic spreading centers
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
Oceanic spreading centers are sites of magmatic, tectonic, and hydrothermal processes. In this thesis I present experimental and seismological constraints on the evolution of these complex regions of focused crustal accretion ...
Structure and evolution of an oceanic megamullion on the Mid-Atlantic ridge at 27N̊
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
Megamullions in slow-spreading oceanic crust are characterized by smooth "turtle-back" morphology and are interpreted to be rotated footwalls of long-lived detachment faults. Megamullions have been analyzed in preliminary ...
