“Geophysical Crustal-Scale Investigations of Non-Volcanic rifted margins: Deciphering the Complexities of Offshore Newfoundland”
Canada’s submarine limits offshore Newfoundland and Labrador consist of rifted continental margins that formed during the opening of the modern day North Atlantic Ocean. The extension and subsequent rifting of continental crust to form new oceans results in the development of transitional crust between extended continental crust and newly created oceanic crust. The rifted margins of Newfoundland and Labrador represent magma-poor/non-volcanic margins that host many of our country’s most valuable resources.
