One of the programs of the International Decade of Ocean Exploration (I.D.O.E.) is a geological and geophysical study of the eastern Atlantic continental margin and adjacent deep-sea floor. This report is a compilation of the geophysical traverses made from the Congo Canyon (Republic of Zaire) to Lisbon, Portugal during the first half of 1973. Also included in the atlas are geophysical traverses from Woods Hole to Dakar and from Dakar to Latitude 10°N made during January-February, 1972.

The role of premagmatic rifting in shaping a volcanic continental margin: An example from the Eastern North American Margin Lang, Guy; ten Brink, Uri S.; Hutchinson, Deborah R.; Mountain, Gregory; Schattner, Uri (American Geophysical Union, 2020-10-12)Both magmatic and tectonic processes contribute to the formation of volcanic continental margins. Such margins are thought to undergo extension across a narrow zone of lithospheric thinning (~100 km). New observations based ...
Continental interior and edge breakup at convergent margins induced by subduction direction reversal: a numerical modeling study applied to the South China Sea margin Li, Fucheng; Sun, Zhen; Yang, Hongfeng; Lin, Jian; Stock, Joann M.; Zhao, Zhongxiang; Xu, Hehua; Sun, Longtao (American Geophysical Union, 2020-10-06)The dynamics of continental breakup at convergent margins has been described as the results of backarc opening caused by slab rollback or drag force induced by subduction direction reversal. Although the rollback hypothesis ...
A radiocarbon-based assessment of the preservation characteristics of crenarchaeol and alkenones from continental margin sediments Mollenhauer, Gesine; Eglinton, Timothy I.; Hopmans, Ellen C.; Sinninghe Damste, Jaap S. (2008-01-22)Crenarchaeotal glycerol dibiphytanyl glycerol tetraether (GDGT) lipids and alkenones are two types of biomarkers derived from planktonic marine micro-organisms which are used for reconstruction of sea-surface temperatures. ...
