...SOUMYAJIT MUKHERJEE; CHRISTOPHER J. TALBOT; HEMIN A. KOYI Abstract The parabolic surface profiles of the Hormuz and Namakdan salt diapirs in the Persian Gulf suggest that they have been extruding with Newtonian viscous rheologies for the last 10 4 years. We derive velocity profiles...

... sequences, Giles and Lawton, 2002, Giles and Rowan, 2012). However, minibasins are rarely found in isolation, and are instead part of arrays of closely spaced minibasins bounded by complex networks of salt walls and diapirs forming minibasin provinces. Minibasin provinces form in different types of tectonic...

... hydrostatic) and are not updated to reflect perturbations imparted by the solid mechanical model. Bowers (2007) uses a wellbore as proxy for a salt diapir and shows, with inelastic soil models, that pore pressures should develop around salt. Here, we incorporate a poromechanical formulation in our...

... the length of the island and on one of them (Namakdan) the underlying Hormuz series of pre-Oligocene age crops out. In test wells on five other domes the Hormuz was found at unexpectedly shallow depths. It is interesting to note the theories advanced to account for the structural relationships: (1) two sets...
