A multichannel seismic survey of the Tagus abyssal plain defines the extent of oceanic crust and the continent-ocean boundary. This boundary is marked by landward-dipping reflectors. The oceanic domain is divided into two parts: a deep eastern basin, where an abandoned earliest Cretaceous spreading center is inferred, and a shallower western basin formed after a ridge jump. This latter oceanic domain may have a western complement in the Newfoundland basin.

Extensional Tectonics and Stratigraphy of the North Atlantic Margins
Stimulated by the wealth of frontier exploration data and deep seismic surveys about the North Atlantic margins, this publication was crafted to provide a comprehensive analysis of North Atlantic extension. The 40 papers in this volume are divided into 6 sections: concepts, North Atlantic perspectives, North American margins, European-African margins, North Sea and Barents Shelf, and analogs. This book is concerned primarily with the circum-North Atlantic data base. It is largely biased toward presentation and interpretation of data rather than being model driven. The book includes comparative stratigraphic columns for basins of the North Atlantic margins.
