Collapse basin; a new type of extensional sedimentary basin from the Devonian of Norway
Geology (Boulder) (February 1989) 17 (2): 127-130

Abstract

Pure-shear and simple-shear models provide interpretations of sedimentary basins formed by extension of crust and lithosphere of normal thickness. Devonian basins of western Norway developed during collapse of the thickened Caledonian crust and return to a crust and lithosphere of normal thickness. Because extension did not thin the lithosphere to less than its normal thickness, no thermal subsidence phase followed the initial subsidence.
