The nature and significance of the Faroe-Shetland Terrane: Linking Archaean basement blocks across the North Atlantic (2018)
Journal Article
Holdsworth, R., Morton, A., Frei, D., Gerdes, A., Strachan, R., Dempsey, E., …Whitham, A. (2019). The nature and significance of the Faroe-Shetland Terrane: Linking Archaean basement blocks across the North Atlantic. Precambrian research, 321, 154-171. doi:10.1016/j.precamres.2018.12.004

Core samples of the continental basement rocks that underlie the eastern Faroe-Shetland Basin (FSB) and its inshore margins west of Shetland reveal a suite of predominantly granodioritic to granitic orthogneisses (including TTG), together with lesser... Read More

Tectonic evolution of the Southern Negros Geothermal Field and implications for the development of fractured geothermal systems (2018)
Journal Article
Pastoriza, L. R., Holdsworth, R. E., Mccaffrey, K. J. W., & Dempsey, E. (2018). Tectonic evolution of the Southern Negros Geothermal Field and implications for the development of fractured geothermal systems. Geofluids, 2018, doi:10.1155/2018/6025038

Fluid flow pathway characterisation is critical to geothermal exploration and exploitation. In fractured geothermal reservoirs, it requires a good understanding of the structural evolution together with the fracture distribution and fluid flow proper... Read More

Evidence for basement reactivation during the opening of the Labrador Sea from the Makkovik Province, Labrador, Canada: Insights from field data and numerical models (2018)
Journal Article
Peace, A. L., Dempsey, E. D., Schiffer, C., Welford, J., Mccaffrey, K. J., Imber, J., & Phethean, J. J. (2018). Evidence for basement reactivation during the opening of the Labrador Sea from the Makkovik Province, Labrador, Canada: Insights from field data and numerical models. Geosciences, 8(8), 308. doi:10.3390/geosciences8080308

The onshore exposures adjacent to modern, offshore passive continental margins may preserve evidence of deformation from the pre‐, syn‐, and post‐rift phases of continental breakup that allow us to investigate the processes associated with and contro... Read More
