    Notes: [Auszug] Tectonic subsidence of a sedimentary basin is calculated by quantitatively removing the effects of sediment compaction, sediment loading, water depth changes and eustatic sea level changes (if known) from the cumulative thicknesses of the basin fill4. The procedure produces cumulative tectonic ...

    Notes: [Auszug] Indirect evidence for the ages of the rift to post-rift transition as well as for the final rifting phase were inferred from tectonic subsidence curves for early Palaeozoic strata in the Cordilleran miogeocline4'6 (Figs 1, 2). The strata (ranging from early Cambrian to late Ordovician in age) are ...
