The Rockall Basin and adjacent areas

January 01, 2016


The Rockall Basin is a large NE-SW-trending basin, approximately 800 km in length, underlying the deep-water Rockall Trough (Figs 1, 170 & 171). (N.B. Rockall Trough, Rockall Plateau and other topographical terms have also been commonly applied to the corresponding structural features. In the Irish sector, these are now differentiated as Basins and Highs (Naylor et al. 1999), but this terminology is not always followed in the UK sector (see Stoker et al. 2001).)
