Structural investigation and strain analysis of a polyphase flower structure in the Lower Saxony Basin, Germany


The Lower Saxony Basin (LSB) is a part of the post-Variscan Central European Basin System. We used a 3-D reflection seismic dataset in the northern LSB, provided by RWE-DEA AG, Hamburg (c.f. Lohr et al. submitted) for our investigation, which is concerned with the detailed structural and kinematic analysis of a flower structure within Mesozoic strata. This data is used in turn to determine input parameters for further 3-D geometrical retro-deformation. The retro-deformation verifies our assumptions about the structure and tectonic processes, and gives further information about sub-seismic strain distribution with respect to the branch faults of the flower structure.
