The Paleozoic supercontinent cycle and regional tectonics

Uwe Kroner , Tobias Stephan & Rolf L. Romer
TU Bergakademie Freiberg(1);GFZ Potsdam, Germany(2);University of Calgary, Canada(3);Ancient plate boundary processes define the first order architecture of consolidated continental crust. Therefore, regional tectonic features allow for the reconstruction of plate tectonic processes. Here we explain the Paleozoic tectonics of various orogens of Europe and both Americas in terms of the Pannotia – Pangea supercontinent cycle. Early Paleozoic separation of Gondwana and Siberia from the eastern and western edges of North America, respectively, is compensated by...

Deepwater Systems Reloaded: Advances on our understanding on submarine lobe deposits

Submarine lobes are high aspect ratio sand-rich deposits that are fed by turbidity currents and debris flows via channels in deep-marine settings. As a major component of submarine fans, they represent 1) an important archive of palaeo-environmental change, 2) sinks for organic carbon and pollutants, and 3) are also of economic interest. Classic models describe lobes as purely depositional tabular sheets that thin and fine from an apex. Over the last decade, outcrop studies, numerical...
