  Crustal Structure of the Rhinegraben area. In: S. Mueller (Editor), The Structure of the Earth's Crust, based on Seismic Data, Tectonophysics 20 (1–4): – Numerous geological and geophysical investigations within the past decades have shown that the Rhinegraben is the most pronounced segment of an extended continental rift system in by: Two of the most important segments of the west European Rift, the Rhinegraben and the Massif Central grabens, show in plan and in cross section a very different crustal structure. The Rhinegraben. Abstract. The Rhinegraben is one of the best studied rift structures in the world. In the past 20 years, it has been the site of many seismic refraction studies. However, most of the profiles have only been interpreted using 1-D methods. In this paper a combined 2-D and 1-D analysis of the only reversed profile within the graben proper is by:   Crustal Structure of the Rhinegraben area. In: S.

THE NORTHERN RHINEGRABEN The Rhine valley, approximately 40+5 km wide, is bounded by two master normal fault zones (Fig. ID).

The book focuses on the formation, behavior, and mechanisms of grabens. The selection first offers information on crustal doming and the mechanism of continental rifting, mechanisms of continental riftogenesis, and thermal regimes, mantle diapirs, and crustal stresses of continental rifts.

Abstract. Detailed features of the crustal structure beneath the Black Forest basement complex (in southwestern Germany), the adjacent Jura mountains and Molasse basin (in northern Switzerland) combined with the eastern and southern geotraverses across the Swiss Alps have recently been surveyed by various geophysical methods. The group became known as the CREST working group, an acronym of Continental Rifts: Evolution, Structure and Tectonics, which not surprisingly became the title of this ental Rifts: Evolution, Structure, Tectonics presents an overview of the present state of understanding and knowledge of the processes of continental rifting from a.
