    The late Permian-early Triassic east-west extensional rifting phase was followed by a second rift phase that initiated during deposition of the Middle Jurassic and locally affected early Cretaceous strata. The late Permian-early Triassic rift is more prominent, setting up the main rift elements, which were reactivated during the late Jurassic. The Permian–Triassic (P–Tr) extinction event, colloquially known as the Great Dying, the End Permian or the Great Permian Extinction. occurred about Ma (million years) ago, forming the boundary between the Permian and Triassic geologic periods, as well as the Paleozoic and Mesozoic eras. It is the Earth's most severe known extinction event, with up to 96% of all marine species and 70%. The Triassic is the first geological period in the Mesozoic that began million years ago, and ended at million years ago. Before it was the Permian It is followed by the Jurassic.. Both the start and the end of the Triassic are marked by great extinction events. The period began after the great extinction at the end of the Palaeozoic era, the P/Tr extinction event. Three rifting phases are recognizable: Late Devonian-Early Carboniferous, Early Triassic, and Jurassic-Early Cretaceous. The principal features of the geologic structure and evolution of the BM during the late Paleozoic-Mesozoic correlate well with those of the Sverdup basin, Canadian Arctic.

Carter, A. Yelland, C. Bristow & A.J. Hurford. To what extent Permo-Triassic rifting influenced sedimentation in the petroleum provinces of the Central and Viking Grabens of the North Sea is still debated. Elsewhere on and around the present-day continental shelf of Northwest Europe the influence of the rifting on Permo-Triassic sedimentation is becoming clearer.

The book includes chapters updating varied topics, like the Permian and Triassic chronostratigraphic scales, palaeogeographic reconstructions of the western Permian And Triassic Rifting in Northwest Europe book since the Late Permian, the petroleum systems associated with Permian And Triassic Rifting in Northwest Europe book salt, allochthonous salt tectonics, and a latest revision of salt tectonic processes in the Permian Zechstein Basin, the Atlantic Margins (from Barents Sea, Scotia, Portugal, Morocco, and Mauritania), the Alpine folded belts.

Its first phases of development started during the Early Permian, and were linked to the beginning of the break-up of Pangea, the large, unique and rheologically unstable supercontinent that mainly resulted from the collision of Gondwana and by: 1. varied across the region as Boreal and T ethyan rifting propagated into the interior of northwest Europe.

3 Triassic Rift‐Related Faults in the Klitdal Area. The eastern margin of the Jameson Land Basin is represented by the N‐S elongated Liverpool Land high that is characterized by Caledonian basement rocks and sporadic Palaeozoic sediments.

The primary subject of this book focuses on the Triassic-Jurassic rifting events that led to the breakup of Pangaea and the opening of the central Atlantic Ocean.

Permian And Triassic Rifting in Northwest Europe book The latest Permian and Triassic salt basins resulted from widespread aridity and progressive rifting across equatorial Pangea. Rift propagation into the continental interior provided conduits for marine brines, and polyphase rifting along multiple extension vectors created a complex network of partially connected, subsea-level receiving by: 9.

Pre-drift sediments of Madagascar (Early Permian-Middle Jurassic) have been studied palynologically. These studies resulted in a more precise dating of individual stratigraphic units and the recognition of minor and major breaks in the succession.

After continental collision during the Variscan Orogeny, northwest Europe lay in equatorial latitudes within the Pangean supercontinent during the Permian and Northern Ireland, while Carboniferous stress fields were influenced by northeast-southwest-trending Caledonian structures, the Early Permian is the first time that the effects of North Atlantic rifting can be detected.

Traditionally the Permian in northwest Europe is subdivided into two parts as defined originally in medieval Germany. The main Permian target for mining was the valuable ‘Kupferschiefer’ (‘coppershale’), overlain by ‘Zechstein’ (‘quarry stone’) consisting of carbonates and evaporites.

It rested on the economically less interesting ‘Rotliegend’ (‘red foundation’) sequence. Influence of basement on the geometry of Permo-Triassic basins in the northwest British Isles.

Permian extinction, also called Permian-Triassic extinction or end-Permian extinction, a series of extinction pulses that contributed to the greatest mass extinction in Earth’s geologists and paleontologists contend that the Permian extinction occurred over the course of 15 million years during the latter part of the Permian Period ( million to million years ago).

East Africa represents the most rifted portion of crust on the planet, having been subjected to numerous phases of extension from Permian to Recent times. The first rifting phase commences in the Permian as the 'Karoo' set of narrow half-graben, many formed by lateral shear. Peak rifting appears to be of Middle Permian age for rifts south of Tanzania.

The North German Basin is a passive-active rift basin located in central and west Europe, lying within the southeastern most portions of the North Sea and the southwestern Baltic Sea and across terrestrial portions of northern Germany, Netherlands, and Poland.

The North German Basin is a sub-basin of the Southern Permian Basin, that accounts for a composite of intra-continental basins composed of Permian. the permian-triassic boundary Boundary sections are extremely important in helping to discern the nature of events at the boundaries between one geological time period and another.

The Permian–Triassic extinction event, also known as the P–Tr extinction, the P–T extinction, the End-Permian Extinction, and colloquially as the Great Dying, formed the boundary between the Permian and Triassic geologic periods, as well as between the Paleozoic and Mesozoic eras, approximately million years ago.

The North Permian Basin was cross cut first by north–south rifting during the Triassic, expressed as faulting of the Norwegian-Danish Basin and subsequently by a second phase of rifting in the Middle and Upper Jurassic forming the more northwesterly trending Central Graben (Figure 1).

The Triassic (Alberti, ) is a geologic period that extends from about to million years ago (MYA). As the first period of the Mesozoic Era, the Triassic follows the Permian and is followed by the the start and end of the Triassic are marked by major extinction events.

The extinction event that closed the Triassic period has recently been more accurately dated. The Worcester Basin or Worcester Graben is a sedimentary basin in central England, filled with mainly Permian and Triassic rocks.

It trends roughly north-south and lies between the East Malverns Fault in the west and the Inkberrow Fault in the east. The Triassic was named in by Friedrich Von Alberti from the three distinct layers (Latin trias meaning triad)—red beds, capped by chalk, followed by black shales—that are found throughout Germany and northwest Europe, called the 'Trias'.

In a pdf study, researchers from MIT provide evidence pdf volcanic activity did indeed trigger the end-Triassic extinction, killing off 76 percent of marine and terrestrial species on Earth. More than million years ago, a massive extinction decimated 76 percent of marine and terrestrial species, marking the end of the Triassic period and the onset of the Jurassic.-During the late Triassic N.A began separating from africa causing fault block basins to develope in response to upwelling magma beneath pangaea.-the fault block mountains produced by this rifting continued to erode during the jurassic and early cretaceous until all that was left was an area of low relief.In the Early Permian circumstances changed.
