... A gravity gradient technique, Euler deconvolution, coupled with wide-angle seismic data supports the presence of a major cross-basin fault zone within the Rockall Basin. This fault zone is defined by a major NW–SE-trending transverse gravity lineament that reflects pronounced variations in crustal...

... in the Porcupine region were N–S throughout its Late Palaeozoic to Cenozoic history, while those in the Slyne, Erris, Rockall and probably Hatton basins were predominantly NNE–SSW to NE–SW. The main structural controls in the Goban region were orientated ENE–WSW and NNW–SSE. The Porcupine Basin is shown to have...

... apparent as offsets on the gravity residuals map ( Fig. 4 ). Where faults of this orientation occur they exhibit lateral offset. Seismic mapping suggests that they can be interpreted as a series of transfer faults. This trend is also strongly developed in other parts of the Rockall Basin in Irish and UK...
