Extensional tectonic regimes are therefore primarily associated with divergent (i.e. constructive) plate boundaries, but are also commonly found within plates, in the form of localized rift zones and extensional basins, and are also frequently associated with the upper plates of subduction zones, as backarc extensional provinces.

  The SCS has experienced the entire development process of a marginal sea and is sufficiently young to preserve a complete record of its evolution, making this location an ideal natural laboratory to study the behavior of extensional tectonics, magmatism and crustal transition between continental and oceanic domains.   Buy Extensional Tectonics and Stratigraphy of the North Atlantic Margins (AAPG Memoir 46) on FREE SHIPPING on qualified orders Extensional Tectonics and Stratigraphy of the North Atlantic Margins (AAPG Memoir 46): A. J. Tankard, H. R. Balkwill: : BooksFormat: Hardcover. Extensional Tectonics. Extensional tectonics led to the formation of strongly subsiding basins (e.g., Saint Florent and Aleria basins), which are filled with sediments up to 2 km thick, deposited since the Burdigalian (Ferrandini et al., ) and continuous with the offshore Corsica basin. Abstract. A simplified model of continental extension including lower crustal flow is developed. The model employs the thin sheet approximation in estimating lithospheric yield strength and gravitational buoyancy forces arising from lateral variations in crustal thickness and temperature. The effect of advection and diffusion of heat on the temperature structure and yield strength of the extending .
