The volcanic margins of the northern Labrador Sea: M41-11/22-2013E-PDF

“A new interpretation of seismic reflection data on the northern Labrador rifted margin (Keen et al., 2012) shows features which are commonly observed in the igneous crust at volcanic margins, including seaward dipping reflections (SDR), volcanic plateaus, and lava deltas. Below the SDRs, wide angle seismic and gravity data suggest the presence of a thick (~15 km) igneous crust. Comparisons with the well-imaged conjugate west Greenland margin show similar structures there (e.g. Gerlings et al., 2009)"--Introduction.
