1. function OF current booklet throughout the interval may well 19-26, 2003 the NATO complex examine Workshop (ARW) “Mud volcanism, Geodynamics and Seismicity” was once held in Baku. individuals coming from united states, Germany, France, Italy, Portugal, Russian Federation, Ukraine, Romania, Georgia, united kingdom, Israel, Azerbaijan, Tunisia have mentioned approximately varied geodynamic positive factors of dust volcanism and took part to box journeys orientated to a greater wisdom of dust volcanic good points. The assembly occupied with many gains of dust volcanism prevalence and comparable geodynamic themes. the aim of current publication is to assemble contributions mentioned through the assembly and to fill a marked editorial hole on dust volcanism. dust volcanism was once thus far defined through neighborhood monographies or by way of articles released by way of clinical journals. specifically no books have been released on subject matters capable of spotlight the hyperlink between dust volcanism, geodynamics and seismicity. dust volcano of Nirano (Northern Italy). Engraving from Stoppani A. (1871), Corso di Geologia, Milan, Bernardoni G. and Brigola G. Publishers. 2. WHY dust VOLCANOES ARE GEOLOGICALLY very important ? dust volcanoes have attracted the eye of earth scientists for a few years. as a result of their significance in hydrocarbon learn, a constant growth within the wisdom of dust volcanism came about long ago 20 years. dust extrusion is a well known phenomenon happening in geological environments the place fluid-rich, high-quality grained sediments ascend inside a lithologic succession because of their buoyancy.

Perspectives on Scientific Argumentation: Theory, Practice and Research

Argumentation—arriving at conclusions on a subject via a means of logical reasoning that comes with debate and persuasion— has in recent times emerged as a imperative subject of debate between technological know-how educators and researchers. there's now a company and normal trust that fostering argumentation in studying actions can strengthen scholars’ serious considering and reasoning talents, and that dialogic and collaborative inquiries are key precursors to an engagement in medical argumentation.

In the south-western margin of the gulf of Mexico, undercompacted Neogene shales and salt intrusive structures are associated to listric growth faults bordering syncline structures with trapped sediments (Shaub, 1983). , 1992). 5. SEQUENCE AND BASIN STRUCTURING The hypothesis of the presence of diapirs and claykinesis activity along the Neogene deposits in Tunisia is also shown by the synsedimentary structuring of sequence deposits and basin geometry and distribution. , 1997) and Pliocene and Quaternary deposits consist of six to eight Seismic sequences (S1 to S8) (Figs.

2 Wedge and arc characteristics A basic structural margin concept for both study areas consists of a small deformed prism behind the toe of the overriding plate and a landward thickening margin wedge with P-wave velocities between ~5 km/s at the coast and ~4 km/s at the lower slope (Fig. 3). , 1996). , 2000; Fig. , 1999). , 2001). Lateral seaward velocity decreases are T. Moerz et al. , 1996). , 2000). In the rough southern domain ridges and seamounds elevate, undermine, fracture and fold the overlying wedge.

The data quality is generally good, and the available sections went through a standard marine processing scheme involving geometry, single-trace processing (gain, filters, deconvolution), multiple-suppression, Dip move-out (DMO) stack, and poststack time migration. In order to examine the possible existence of a BSR in the area, several lines were selected for reprocessing. Emphasis was given to the wavelet processing and the imaging of the upper part of the sections. The initial processing phase was mainly dedicated to deconvolution and 20 Seismic signature of gas hydrate filter tests in order to verify the reverse-polarity feature of the assumed BSR event.
