    • In particular, we relate apparent Neogene subsidence to modification of the Shelf's basement architecture.
    • Tertiary sediments cause subsidence of the basin substrata 2.3 km below sea level, as a result of the sediment load.
    • Removal of water from compressible materials such as silt and clay can lead to compaction of the confining unit and subsidence of the land surface.
    • The history during this time is characterized by uplift at the most proximal location and an increase in subsidence at the most distal location.
    • This is because magmatic material thickens the crust, creating uplift rather than subsidence.
    • As the basin filled, or the rate of subsidence relative to the influx of material lessened, subaerial fluvial deposits were emplaced.
    • This would result in the underestimation of the tectonic subsidence that occurred during the deposition of the shales.
    • Excess accommodation could be created by rapid tectonic subsidence in the centre of a tilt-block basin.
    • In fact, tectonic subsidence was calculated to be slightly higher in the Early Tertiary High than in the Voorne Trough.
    • In this work, the logarithmic theory is used to calculate the amount of land subsidence.
    • The early Cretaceous is characterized by relative quiescence and thermal subsidence following late Jurassic rifting.
    • Thermal subsidence began to affect the onshore Central Plains area of Thailand.
    • Melt injection leads initially to isostatic uplift followed by subsidence as the melt freezes.
    • We attribute this low rate to the continued post-rift thermal subsidence of the Indian margin.
    • Cover for accidental damage to contents and also for flooding or subsidence are other areas that should be clarified before taking out a policy.
    • Quaternary sedimentary fill testifies to recent subsidence of the basin.
    • It could be argued that high subsidence rates of the rift basin there meant that a regressive signal was not recorded.
    • The forward model predicts approximately 4 km of tectonic subsidence at this point.
    • In addition, a drastic decrease in subsidence rates before the onset of the Late Eocene Pyrenean inversion was determined.
    • Also, at least on the Atlantic coast, you have both sea level rise and land subsidence going on at the same time.
