Constraining uplift and denudation of West African continental margin by inversion of stacking velocity data.

Article English OPEN
Walford, H. L.; White, N. J.;

An inverse model has been developed to determine the magnitude of denudation at\ud seabed and subsurface unconformities by using root-mean-square (RMS) stacking\ud velocity data derived from processing a set of seismic reflection profiles. This approach\ud provides supe... View more
