    Re-processing and Interpretation of 2D Seismic Line in the Kristineberg Mining Area, Northern Sweden2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Skellefte district, 1.90 to 1.80 Ga, is one of the most important base metal mining districts of Sweden with over 85 volcanic-hosted massive sulfide (VHMS) deposits. The study area focuses on the western part of the Skellefte district which contains volcanic, metasedimentary and intrusive rocks. In 2003, seismic data acquisition was carried out in the western part of the Skellefte district in the vicinity of the Kristineberg mine. Two parallel seismic lines were acquired about 8 km apart from each other. Profile 1 is about 22 km long and selected for the re-processing and interpretation in this thesis. The acquisition geometry, low fold coverage, the complex tectonic history and fewer outcrops in the area make the data processing and interpretation quite challenging and required a careful processing design to obtain interpretable seismic image. The re-processed Profile 1 is correlated with two other newly acquired seismic lines in the area for the purpose of possible 3D visualization and interpretation. The re-processing work includes a careful velocity analysis along with a series of iterations in residual statics, poststack and prestack migrations and cross dip analysis. The re-processed seismic section clearly shows a north dipping reflector which truncates against the Revsund Granites at depth. The possible interpretation for this reflector is a structural basement to the Skellefte Group constituting Bothnian Basin or a fault zone within the Viterliden intrusion. The Kristineberg mine is situated on the northern limb of a synform structure with prominent southwards dipping reflections. The major lithological contacts between different rock units are series of latest thrust faults. The prominent reflectivity within and at the contact with the Viterliden intrusion may suggest deep seated mineralized horizons. The cross dip analysis helps finding the eastward dipping component for the shallow horizons. The re-processed image is also compared with the previous processed seismic section and improvements in reflectors are evident.

    Incoherent scatter ion line enhancements and auroral arc-induced Kelvin-Helmholtz turbulence2015In: Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics, ISSN 1364-6826, E-ISSN 1879-1824, Vol. 122, p. 119-128Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We present two cases of incoherent-scatter ion line enhancements in conjunction with auroral arcs drifting through the radar beam. The up- and downshifted ion line shoulders as well as the spectral region between them are enhanced equally and simultaneously. The power enhancements are one order of magnitude above the thermal level and are concentrated in less than 15 km wide altitude ranges at the ionospheric F region peak. The auroral arc passages are preceded by significantly enhanced ion temperatures in the E region, which are shown to generate high velocity shears. We use a Hall MHD model of velocity shears perpendicular to the geomagnetic field and show that a Kelvin-Helmholtz instability will grow for the two presented cases. We assess the possibility that the subsequently generated low frequency turbulence can explain the observed spectrally uniform ion line power enhancements.

    Seismic anisotropy of the mantle lithosphere beneath the Swedish National Seismological Network (SNSN)2010In: Tectonophysics, ISSN 0040-1951, E-ISSN 1879-3266, Vol. 480, no 1-4, p. 241-258Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Body-wave analysis – shear-wave splitting and P-travel time residuals - detect anisotropic structure of the upper mantle beneath the Swedish part of Fennoscandia. Geographic variations of both the splitting measurements and the P-residual spheres map regions of different fabrics of the mantle lithosphere. The fabric of individual mantle domains is internally consistent, usually with sudden changes at their boundaries. Distinct back-azimuth dependence of SKS splitting excludes single-layer anisotropy models with horizontal symmetry axes for the whole region. Based upon joint inversion of body-wave anisotropic parameters we instead propose 3D self-consistent anisotropic models of well-defined mantle lithosphere domains with differently oriented fabrics approximated by hexagonal aggregates with plunging symmetry axes. The domain-like structure of the Precambrian mantle lithosphere, most probably retaining fossil fabric since the domains’ origin, supports the idea of the existence of an early form of plate tectonics during formation of continental cratons already in the Archean. Similarly to different geochemical and geological constraints, the 3D anisotropy modelling and mapping of fabrics of the lithosphere domains contribute to tracking plate tectonics regimes back in time.

    S and P velocity heterogeneities within the upper mantle below the Baltic Shield2008In: Tectonophysics, ISSN 0040-1951, E-ISSN 1879-3266, Vol. 462, no 1-4, p. 109-124Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Upper mantle structure beneath the Baltic (Fennoscandian) Shield is investigated using non-linear tomographic inversion of relative arrival-time residuals. 52 selected teleseismic earthquakes recorded by 45 broadband stations of the Swedish National Seismological Network (SNSN) provide 1532 good quality S-wave relative arrival times. SV and SH arrival-time residuals were initially analyzed independently, providing two separate models. These reveal several consistent major features, many of which are also consistent with P-wave results. Lateral velocity variations of ± 3–4% are observed to depths of at least 470 km. The correlation between the SH and SV models is investigated and shows a pattern of minor but significant differences down to around 150–200 km depth, below which the models are essentially similar. Direct cell by cell comparison of the model velocities reveals a similar pattern, with velocity differences between the models of up to 4%. Numerical tests show that differences in the two S-wave models can only be partially attributed to noise and limited resolution, and some features are attributed to the effect of large scale anisotropy. One of the significant and sharp discrepancies between the S models coincides with a presumed boundary between Archean and Proterozic domains, suggesting different anisotropic characteristics in the two regions.

    Do organics contribute to small particle formation in the Amazonian upper troposphere?2008In: Geophysical Research Letters, ISSN 0094-8276, E-ISSN 1944-8007, Vol. 35, no L17810, p. 5-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    3-D cloud-resolving model simulations including explicit aerosol physics and chemistry are compared with observations of upper tropospheric (12 km) aerosol size distributions over the Amazon Basin. The model underestimates the aerosol number concentration for all modes, especially the nucleation mode (d < 18 nm). We show that a boundary layer SO2 mixing ratio of approximately 5 ppb would be needed in order to reproduce the high nucleation mode number concentrations observed. This high SO2 mixing ratio is very unlikely for the pristine Amazon Basin at this time of the year. Hence, it is suggested that vapours other than H2SO4 participate in the formation and growth of small aerosols. Using activation nucleation theory together with a small (0.4–10%) secondary organic aerosol mass yield, we show that isoprene has the potential of substantially increasing the number of small particles formed as well as reducing the underestimate for the larger aerosol modes.

    Penetration of ELF currents and electromagnetic fields into the Earth's equatorial ionosphere2009In: Journal of Geophysical Research, ISSN 0148-0227, E-ISSN 2156-2202, Vol. 114, p. A10301-A10314Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The penetration of extremely low frequency (ELF) transient electromagnetic fields and associated currents in the Earth's equatorial E-region plasma is studied theoretically and numerically. In the low-frequency regime, the plasma dynamics of the E-region is characterized by helicon waves since the ions are viscously coupled to neutrals while the electrons remain mobile. For typical equatorial E-region parameters, the plasma is magnetically insulated from penetration of very long timescale magnetic fields by a thin diffusive sheath. Wave penetration driven by a vertically incident pulse localized in space and time leads to both vertical penetration and the triggering of ELF helicon/whistler waves that carry currents obliquely to the magnetic field lines. The study presented here may have relevance for ELF wave generation by lightning discharges and seismic activity and can lead to new concepts in ELF/ULF injection in the earth-ionosphere waveguide.

    A palaeomagnetic study of Svecokarelian basic rocks from northern Sweden1985In: Geologiska föreningens i Stockholm förhandlingar, ISSN 0016-786X, Vol. 107, no 1, p. 17-35Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This palaeomagnetic investigation comprises basic rocks from six localities from the Svecokarelian zone in northern Sweden. Most of the pole positions in this study and other reported poles of Svecokarelian and post-Svecokarelian rocks fall within an approximately 12 degrees wide band running from east to west representing ages of magnetizations from 1880-1700 to ∼ 1530 Ma. Thermal demagnetizations of specimens of the probably oldest massifs indicate a possible backward continuation of the polar wandering path. Mineralogical studies of thin sections of the rocks show ore symplectites and myrmekitic textures indicating a slow rate of cooling at least at the end of the rock formation. Signs of metamorphism are demonstrated by the existence of secondary minerals, including magnetite, not related to late magmatic alterations. The distribution of site means as well as the change of directions of the remanence vectors during thermal demagnetization can be explained by a slow rate of cooling and where signs of metamorphism exist by partial remagnetization of the rock. This study has, apart from the palaeomagnetic results, demonstrated the difficulty of correlating radiometric ages with ages of magnetization

    Basic dykes and dyke swarms in central and northern Sweden and the plate tectonic evolution of Fennoscandia: palaeomagnetic and Ar39/Ar40 studies2005In: "Dyke swarms - time markers of crustal evolution": Fifth International Dyke Conference, Pohtimolampi Wilderness Hotel, Polar Circle, Rovaniemi, Finland, 31 June - 3 August 2005 ; abstracts and programme / [ed] Jouni Vuollo; Satu Mertanen, Espoo: Geological Survey of Finland , 2005, p. 11-Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Palaeomagnetic and Ar39/Ar40 studies have been performed on basic dykes and dyke swarms in central and northern Sweden. At least five different generations of dykes have been defined and will be discussed in a plate tectonic context. Reliable palaeomagnetic data have been obtained from a big gabbro diabase and a geographically related dyke swarm in the northern part of Sweden from which poles similar to those calculated from Svecofennian gabbros (ca 1.86 Ga) are defined. In another swarm of palaeomagnetically similar age, just north of the Skellefte district, partially remagnetized dykes indicate a possible Subjotnian or Caledonian regional remagnetization. The dykes are younger when moving towards the south and in the central part there is a significant dyke swarm with at least two generations of dykes (ca. 1.7 and 1.6 Ga, respectively), one of which is related with rapakivi magmatism. Palaeomagnetic and anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS) data from the huge ca 1.25 Ga sill complexes in central Sweden and western Finland and from basic intrusions in Greenland suggest that Baltica and Laurentia were joined at that time. The similar stress field as indicated by the AMS data and the tensional regime reflected by the sill complexes is interpreted related to the break up of Baltica from Laurentia. New data from ca 1.1 Ga dykes in central Sweden confirms a clockwise rotation of Fennoscandia between 1.25 and 1.1 Ga, a rotation that is not seen for Laurentia.

    Density and magnetic properties of rocks in the Caledonides of Jämtland, Sweden1980In: Geologiska föreningens i Stockholm förhandlingar, ISSN 0016-786X, Vol. 102, no 4, p. 439-453Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Density and magnetic properties were determined on some 1350 rock samples, taken from the different lithologies in the Caledonides of Jmtland, Sweden. The density determinations showed a strong trend of increasing density when moving from east to west in the investigated area. There was also a general increase in density upwards in the tectono-stratigraphy from the autochthon to the Seve of the Seve-Kli Nappe Complex. The determination of magnetic properties showed that east of the Caledonian Front the dominating high-susceptibility rock was the Rtan granite. In the Eastern Complex, west of the Caledonian Front, high-susceptibility rocks were found in the parautochthonous and allochthonous crystalline basement, whereas in the Western Complex the Ottfjllet dolerite in the Srv Nappe was the dominating high-susceptibility rock.

    Evidence for early Proterozoic plate tectonics from seismic reflection profiles in the Baltic Shield1990In: Nature, ISSN 0028-0836, E-ISSN 1476-4687, Vol. 348, p. 34-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Plate tectonics provides the linking framework for all tectonic and magmatic activity seen today, but it is not known when plate tectonics first developed on Earth. New deep seismic reflection and coincident refraction profiles across an exposed, 1.89-Gyr-old volcanic arc complex show a 10-km-thick offset in the Moho and bivergent reflectors in the crust, which were most probably created by plate convergence, subduction and accretion during the Early Proterozoic. Hence, plate tectonic models seem to be applicable for at least the second half of Earth's history.

    Geological modelling based on gravity data from the central part of the Swedish caledonides1988In: Geologiska föreningens i Stockholm förhandlingar, ISSN 0016-786X, Vol. 110, no 4, p. 317-327Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Gravimetric measurements have been carried out within a c. 500 km2 area of western Jämtland in the Swedish Caledonides. Using different types of regional-residual gravity field separations, various geological models have been tested to fit the measured gravity data. Information on the geology and density of the rocks have reduced the number of possible models which are presented along two profiles. These models confirm the existence of antiforms and synforms running approximately parallel to the mountain range. The main profile crosses the two synforms over which positive anomalies are identified. Both in the western Tnnfors Synform and the eastern re Synform this is explained by the presence of high density Seve rocks, in the former case occurring beneath a cover of Kli Nappes. The depth to the base of the Seve Nappe units in the Tnnfors Synform is calculated at 4.5 km and in the re Synform at 3 km. The maximum depth to the interface between Kli and Seve rocks in the Tnnfors district is 3.2 km. Gravimetric models of the basement rocks in the windows, and difference in physical properties between the crystalline rocks of the windows and those of the autochthonous basement east of the Caledonian thrust front, imply that the basement exposed in the antiforms is allochthonous. A gravity minimum east of the re Synform is interpreted as a southern continuation of low density granites related to the Olden Complex. The inferred thickness of these low density rocks suggests that it may be a part of the autochthonous basement.

    Integrated seismic studies of the Baltic shield using data in the Gulf of Bothnia region1993In: Geophysical Journal International, ISSN 0956-540X, E-ISSN 1365-246X, Vol. 112, no 3, p. 305-324Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the autumn of 1989 a co-operative experiment involving 12 research institutions in northwestern Europe collected 2268 km of deep seismic reflection profiles in the Gulf of Bothnia and the Baltic Sea. the 121 litre airgun array used for this profiling was also recorded by 62 muiticomponent land stations to provide coincident refraction surveys, fan-spreads, and 3-D seismic coverage of much of the Gulf of Bothnia. We thus have potentially both high-resolution impedance contrast images as well as more regional 3-D velocity models in both P- and S-waves. In the Bothnian Bay a south-dipping, non-reflective zone coincides with the conductive Archaean-Proterozoic boundary onshore in Finland. Between the Bothnian Bay and Bothnian Sea observed reflectivity geometries and velocity models at Moho depths suggest structures inherited from a 1.9Ga subduction zone; the upper crust here appears to have anomalously low velocity. Within the Bothnian Sea, reflectivity varies considerably beneath the metasedimentary/granitoid rocks of the Central Svecofennian Province (CSP) and the surrounding metavolcanic-arc rocks. Numerous dipping reflectors appear throughout the metavolcanic crust, whereas the CSP has little reflectivity. Wide-angle reflections indicate that the metasedimentary crust of the Bothnian Basin is 10 km thicker than the neighbouring Svecofennian subprovinces. Near the Åland archipelago Rapakivi granite plutons exhibit bright reflections, a contrast to the usual non-reflective plutons elsewhere in western Europe. Additional dipping reflections deep in the crust of this area may support models of rifting and crustal thinning during emplacement of the 1.70-1.54 Ga Rapakivi granites. Coeval gabbroic/anorthositic magmatism may explain the high reflectivity and high velocity of these plutons. the c. 1.25 Ga mafic sills and feeder dykes of the Central Scandinavian Dolerite Group also produce clear reflections on both near- and far-offset seismic sections. Continued modelling will produce better velocity models of the crust and better constrained contour maps of crustal thickness in this part of the Baltic shield.

    Palaeomagnetism of Precambrian rocks in northern Sweden and its correlation to radiometric data1994In: Precambrian Research, ISSN 0301-9268, E-ISSN 1872-7433, Vol. 69, no 1-4, p. 61-79Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A palaeomagnetic study has been performed on Palaeo- to Mesoproterozoic basic intrusions and volcanic rocks from the Fennoscandian shield in northern Sweden. Three, possibly four, different generations of magnetizations were identified, the oldest assigned to a Svecofennian age (1.86-1.89 Ga). A second generation is related to the intrusion of granitoids of 1.80-1.76 Ga. In this geological event probably also the third group of directions has its origin. These different magnetizations may indicate that there are at least two different generations of basic intrusions in northern Sweden. A fourth group of directions is isolated as overprints. This magnetization is interpreted to be a Subjotnian magnetization, reflecting a previously unrecognized regional Subjotnian metamorphic event in the northwestern part of the Fennoscandian shield. The drift history for the Fennoscandian shield during the period 1.88-1.50 Ga has been defined based on these new palaeomagnetic data

    Recording marine airgun shots at offsets between 300 and 700 km1991In: Geophysical Research Letters, ISSN 0094-8276, E-ISSN 1944-8007, Vol. 18, no 4, p. 645-648Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper demonstrates that - under favorable conditions - by using multichannel recording and subsequent stacking of adjacent records marine airgun shots have been detected at offset distances up to 700 km, the maximum offset at which the authors attempted to record data.^Besides a powerful airgun array, a low noise environment at the recording site and the elimination of static shifts are the prerequisites to obtain refracted and reflected arrivals from the crust and upper mantle at such large offsets.^Primary arrivals detected at offsets between 400 and 700 km image the upper mantle from 70 to about 120 km depth.^Stacking of neighboring shots and/or receivers successfully increases the signal-to-noise ratio, if the traces have been corrected for offset differences, which requires knowledge of the apparent phase velocities.^The data presented here were collected in autumn 1989 during the BABEL Project on the Baltic Shield.

    A palaeomagnetic study of rocks, from inside and outside the impact structure has been carried out, with the aim of identifying natural remanent magnetizations (NRMs) related to the impact event. Three different directions of magnetizations, not recognized elsewhere, were identified within the central part of the structure. These three magnetizations are defined in terms of coercivity and blocking temperature. The implications of the results are discussed in relation to ages obtained from Ar-Ar dating of impact melt

    A palaeomagnetic and Ar-40/Ar-39 study of late precambrian sills in the SW part of the Amazonian craton: Amazonia in the Rodinia reconstruction2009In: Geophysical Journal International, ISSN 0956-540X, E-ISSN 1365-246X, Vol. 178, no 1, p. 106-122Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A new key palaeomagnetic pole (Plat. = 64.3°S, Plon. = 271.0°E, N = 14, A95= 9.2°; Q = 5) is calculated from a primary magnetization isolated in early Neoproterozoic Aguapei basic sills and dykes hosted by 1.3-1.0 Ga sedimentary rocks from the southwestern part of the Amazon craton. The characteristic remanence carried by stable, pseudo-single domain titanomagnetite shows two antipodal polarities that pass a reversals test. Magnetic anisotropy for most sites shows fabric orientations that are typical of sills, with horizontal magnetic foliations concordant to the flat-lying bedding of the host sedimentary rocks. 40Ar/39Ar analyses for one of the sills reveal a well-defined plateau age at 981 ± 2 Myr. A tectonic reconstruction for Amazonia relative Laurentia based on this new pole 'is consistent with' a position of the present northwestern part of Amazonia attached with eastern Laurentia close to Greenland at ca. 981 Ma. On basis of palaeomagnetic and geological data, we propose a scenario where Amazonia moved northeastwards along the present southeast coast of Laurentia from ca. 1200 to 980 Ma. By 980 Ma, Amazonia is placed alongside Laurentia and Baltica, in a position similar to other reconstructions of Rodinia but with a significantly different orientation.

    A correlation of AMS and rock quality in crystalline and sedimentary rocks in the Kiirunavaara hanging wall2012In: Journal of Applied Geophysics, ISSN 0926-9851, E-ISSN 1879-1859, Vol. 86, p. 54-69Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A study of the magnetic fabric and rock quality has been performed on crystalline and sedimentary rocks from the hanging wall of the Kiirunavaara iron ore deposit, northern Sweden. The rock samples were taken from 12 outcrops and three oriented drillcores and consist of quartzite, siltstone, conglomerate, porphyritic basalts, quartz-bearing porphyry and mylonite.Anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS) was used to determine the texture of the rocks by defining the shape of the magnetic susceptibility ellipsoids, the orientation of the magnetic foliation planes and the degree of magnetic anisotropy. AMS data from the outcrops as well as data from the uppermost part of two of the drillcores was used to produce a surface contour map which indicates that both the dip of the magnetic foliation plane and the degree of magnetic anisotropy decreases towards the east. These two parameters thus generally follow the major structural features of the Kiruna region.Two classical rock mechanical parameters, RQD (Rock Quality Designation) and F/m (fractures pr. meter), were used to quantify the amount of discontinuities and fractures in the drill cores. RQD and F/m was subsequently correlated with the AMS data, and a correlation was observed, with the correlation coefficient r varying between 0.6142-0.7557. The correlation was limited to just one of the drillcores however it could be traced across rock type boundaries. The correlation indicates that AMS may be used as an indicator tool of the rock mechanical properties in both crystalline and sedimentary rocks.

    Palaeomagnetism and AR-40/AR-39 age determinations of the Ediacaran traps from the southwestern margin of the East European Craton, Ukraine: relevance to the Rodinia break-up2007In: Journal of the Geological Society, ISSN 0016-7649, E-ISSN 2041-479X, Vol. 164, no 5, p. 969-982Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A palaeomagnetic study and age determinations have been performed on Ediacaran basalts from the northwestern Ukraine. Whole-rock ^sup 40^Ar/^sup 39^Ar age determination revealed plateau ages at 590-560 Ma and 393 Ma, the latter probably reflecting a resetting of the radiometric system. Palaeomagnetic poles have been calculated from five basalt flows, two of which (A poles) are considered reliable with ages that range from 580 to 560 Ma. Tentative poles (B poles), calculated from most probably primary magnetizations, have ages estimated at 580-545 Ma. Secondary magnetizations, possibly of late Ediacaran or Devonian age, have also been isolated (C poles). Based on the new poles, Baltica drifted together with Laurentia from an equatorial position at c. 750 Ma to occupy high southern latitude positions at c. 580 Ma. Baltica during that time period was joined to Laurentia in a similar relative position to that at 750 Ma. The two shields then split up from each other and from c. 550 Ma Baltica drifted at moderately high latitudes and rotated some 180° during the final opening of the Iapetus ocean. This reconstruction suggests that during the Ediacaran glaciation Baltica occupied high-latitude positions, which contradicts the high-obliquity model to explain low-latitude Neoproterozoic glaciations

    A palaeomagnetic study of Mesoproterozoic basic dykes from the Ukrainian Shield and the amalgamation of the shield with Fennoscandia2005In: "Dyke swarms - time markers of crustal evolution": Fifth International Dyke Conference, Pohtimolampi Wilderness Hotel, Polar Circle, Rovaniemi, Finland, 31 June - 3 August 2005 ; abstracts and programme / [ed] Jouni Vuollo; Satu Mertanen, Espoo: Geological Survey of Finland , 2005, p. 12-Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A palaeomagnetic study has been performed on Palaeo-Mesoproterozoic basic intrusions from three crustal blocks of the Ukrainian Shield. At least three different generations of dykes has been identified and positive field tests can be demonstrated for some of them. A sequence of 2.1 to 1.72 Ga apparent polar wander has been defined on basis of the new palaeomagnetic and Ar/Ar data presented here and on basis of old data from anorthosites. The calculated poles are significantly different from poles of similar age from the Fennoscandian Shield. Although the poles are not perfectly coeval the tectonic reconstructions demonstrate that the Ukrainian Shield collided with Fennoscandia at 1.80-1.85 Ga and then rotated some 45° into its present relative position.

    A palaeomagnetic study and age determinations of Tertiary rocks in Nicaragua, Central America2001In: Geophysical Journal International, ISSN 0956-540X, E-ISSN 1365-246X, Vol. 147, no 2, p. 294-309Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Palaeomagnetic, K-Ar and Ar40/Ar39 measurements have been made to elucidate Nicaragua's plate tectonic history. These show that the Nicaraguan Highland rotated 90° counterclockwise between 30 and 18 Myr ago, but the Pacific Coastal Plain has not rotated.A lack of data has prevented a direct comparison with the tectonic history of adjacent areas, in particular, the Chortis Block, which is the part of the Caribbean Plate that is geologically most closely related to the Nicaraguan Highland. However, our data suggest that the Caribbean Plate in this part of Central America was not consolidated until c. 15 Ma.

    Cooling history and age of magnetization of a deep intrusion: a new 1.7 Ga key pole and Svecoffennian-post Svecofennian APWP for Baltica2018In: Precambrian Research, ISSN 0301-9268, E-ISSN 1872-7433Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A paleomagnetic and chronogical study has been performed on the Turinge gabbro-diabase formation and on a cross cutting basic dyke in central Sweden and on the Joulovaara gabbro intrusion in northern Sweden in the Fennoscandian Shield. U-Pb age of baddeleyite and 40Ar/ 39Ar ages of hornblende and biotite reveal a cooling history of the deep gabbro-diabase intrusion in Turinge. The cooling is suggested to have taken place in two stages, one related to the time of intrusion in temperature down to ca 500 °C with a cooling rate up to 46 - 59°/Ma and another at a lower rate of ca 2.9 °C/Ma, which is suggested to be related with uplift. From this cooling history it can be concluded that the magnetization age of the diabase, ca 1695 – 1700 Ma is close to the crystallization age and the 40Ar/39Ar age of hornblende. Applying a similar cooling history for the other studied deep intrusion, the ca 1800 Ma gabbro of Joulovaara gabbro, it is estimated that the magnetization age of the gabbro should be close to that of the U-Pb age of the formation, although the pole of the Joulovaara gabbro is less reliable.

    The cooling history presented here for the Turinge gabbro-diabase has implications for estimations of magnetization ages also for other deep intrusions.

    The new pole (Plat. = 51.6°, Plon. = 220.2°; A95= 4.8°) of the Turinge gabbro-diabase passes most of the reliability criteria and is considered a new key pole for Fennoscandia.

    The Basic dyke that cuts the Turinge gabbro-diabase was here dated at ca 1200 Ma (whole rock, 40Ar/ 39Ar) and the virtual geomagnetic pole calculated from its primary magnetization falls into the expected trend of APWP for Baltica.

    The new Turinge key pole prolong the time of overlapping poles for Fennoscandia, indicating only small movements of the shield between ca. 1870 to 1700 Ma.

    Uplift deduced from remanent magnetization of a proterozoic basic dyke and the baked country rock in the Hoting area, central Sweden: a palaeomagnetic and Ar-40/Ar-39 study2009In: Geophysical Journal International, ISSN 0956-540X, E-ISSN 1365-246X, Vol. 179, no 1, p. 59-78Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Remanent magnetization in dyke contact zones in the Hoting area of the Fennoscandian Shield in the central part of Sweden has been studied in order to establish the ambient temperature of the host rock and the depth of burial of the present erosion surface at the time of intrusion. A positive baked contact test for two Subjotnian dykes demonstrates the primary nature of the dyke magnetization. From the magnetic properties and the palaeomagnetic data, it can be concluded that the overprinting in the hybrid zone of one of the basic dykes is a partial thermoremanent magnetization. Reliable results were also obtained from a palaeointensity study of samples from the hybrid zone in the baked host rock. The study was performed in the laboratories at Luleå and at Scripps and a mean intensity of the Earth's magnetic field of 5.8 ± 1.9 μT was determined. The maximum temperature due to the dyke intrusion in the hybrid zone has been defined and from that an ambient temperature of 375 °C in the host rock at the time of intrusion has been calculated. This calculated temperature is not contradicted by the 40Ar/39Ar data. A palaeothermal gradient in the crust at ca. 1.6 Ga is calculated at ca. 34 °C km-1 and yields a depth of burial of the present erosion surface at ca. 10.4 km. This implies an uplift rate of 0.65 km (100 Ma)-1. A slow cooling of the gabbroic host rock (ca. 3.5 °C Ma-1) has been calculated from the difference in the U-Pb age of zircon (1.786 ± 0.010 Ga) and the 40Ar/39Ar biotite ages (1.648 ± 0.012 Ga; 1614 ± 0.024 Ga) of this study. This slow cooling resulted in a palaeomagnetic age of ca. 1.7 Ga for the gabbro, which is also the age of the determined palaeointensity. The calculated ca. 1.614 Ga palaeomagnetic pole from the basic dykes fulfils most of the criteria for a reliable pole and may be regarded as a new key-pole for Fennoscandia.

    Post Jotnian basic intrusions in the Fennoscandian Shield, and the break up of baltica from Laurentia: a palaeomagnetic and AMS study2001In: Precambrian Research, ISSN 0301-9268, E-ISSN 1872-7433, Vol. 108, no 3-4, p. 215-236Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A palaeomagnetic and anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS) study has been performed on dolerite sills of the Central Scandinavian Dolerite Group (CSDG) in the Fennoscandian Shield. The dolerites occur in four previously known complexes in central Sweden and Finland and from the results of this palaeomagnetic study another complex has been identified in northern Sweden. These complexes cover an area of at least 100 000 km2 and the palaeomagnetic data suggest a small difference in time between the intrusion of the dolerites. The measurements of anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility reveal a magnetic fabric with almost horizontal foliation planes and lineations that indicate fairly uniform ca NW or SE directed magma flows. The dolerites of the CSDG are geochemically rather uniform and have compositions typical of mantle derived melts formed in continental tensional settings. In a palaeomagnetic reconstruction of Baltica versus Laurentia at ca 1.27 Ga the two continents were joined, with NE Greenland attached to NW Baltica. AMS data from a few dolerites and a basalt in NE Greenland indicate magma flow directions that in the tectonic reconstruction are more or less parallel to the flow of the dolerites in Sweden. This may suggest a common magma source located at the reconstructed contact between Baltica and Laurentia. Both the dolerites in Greenland and those in Sweden are of tholeitic composition indicating an intraplate origin, which supports the interpretation of joined continents at that time. The tensional regime, that is reflected by the huge sill complexes, is in our interpretation related to the break up of Baltica from Laurentia at ca 1.27 Ga ago.

    A paleomagnetic and AMS study of the Rätan granite of the Transscandinavian Igneous Belt, central Sweden2001In: GFF, ISSN 1103-5897, E-ISSN 2000-0863, Vol. 123, no 4, p. 205-215Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The 1.85-1.67 Ga Transscandinavian Igneous Belt (TIB) forms a major Paleoproterozoic igneous complex in the western part of the Fennoscandian Shield. Different tectonic models propose that the TIB was formed in a tectonic regime governed either by compression or by extension. This paper presents an analysis of anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS) and paleomagnetic data from the Rätan granite (1.70 Ga), which forms a large pluton in the central part of the TIB. The major aim of the study is to test the existing tectonic models and to define a paleomagnetic pole position for the Rätan granite. Three contrasting magnetic fabric domains are identified. In the eastern and western domains the AMS fabric is characterized by NW-SE to N-S trending subvertical foliation planes and a girdle distribution of the maximum and intermediate anisotropy axes. The central domain is characterized by subhorizontal magnetic foliation planes and lineations that cluster in a NW-SE trending direction. We suggest that the Rätan granite was emplaced in a tectonic regime governed by NW-SE directed extension and that the pluton was fed obliquely with a magma source situated to the present northwest. A positive baked contact test is demonstrated for a basic dyke suggesting that the Rätan granite has not been remagnetized since c. 1.6 Ga. A paleomagnetic formation mean direction is defined for the granite (decl. = 2°, incl. = 59°) that yields a paleopole position of Plat = 67° and Plon = 190°.

    Palaeomagnetism of Proterozoic rocks from the Ukrainian shield: new tectonic reconstructions of the Ukrainian and Fennoscandian shields2001In: Tectonophysics, ISSN 0040-1951, E-ISSN 1879-3266, Vol. 339, no 1-2, p. 19-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A palaeomagnetic study has been performed on Palaeo-Mesoproterozoic rocks from three crustal blocks of the Ukrainian Shield, southern Sarmatia. Primary remanent magnetizations have been isolated in 2.0 Ga monzonite, 2.0-1.8 Ga sandstone, 1.77-1.72 Ga anorthosite and from mafic dykes of probably Palaeo-Mesoproterozoic ages. On basis of these results a sequence of 2.0-1.72 Ga apparent polar wander has for the first time been defined for the Ukrainian Shield. Palaeomagnetic and geological data indicate that there has probably not been any large scale tectonic movements within Sarmatia since the Mesoproterozoic. This suggests that tectonic reconstructions for the Ukrainian Shield may also include Sarmatia. The calculated pole positions for the Ukrainian Shield are significantly different from poles of similar age from the Fennoscandian Shield. The tectonic reconstructions demonstrate that the relative position and orientation of the Ukrainian Shield as a part of Sarmatia in the time interval 2.0-1.78 Ga was different from its present position relative to Fennoscandia. One pole from the Ukrainian Shield falls on the ca. 1.6 or 1.3 Ga part of the Fennoscandian APWP. This pole may represent a time when Fennoscandia was already accreted to Ukrainia. Contemporaneous rifting of the two cratons at ca. 1.35 Ga indicates that they were already joined to each other at that time, which means that the final accretion should have taken place sometimes after ca. 1.8 Ga ago.

    A palaeomagnetic and geochemical study of basic intrusions in northern Sweden2004In: GFF, ISSN 1103-5897, E-ISSN 2000-0863, Vol. 126, no 2, p. 243-252Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A palaeomagnetic and geochemical study has been performed on basic dykes in northern Sweden. The dykes and a gabbro formation were sampled in 28 sites and characteristic magnetizations could be defined in 23 of them. The dykes form a part of a swarm that trends in NE-SW to E-W. From differences in palaeomagnetic signatures and composition it is concluded that this swarm is composed of two generations of dykes, group A and B, trending in similar directions. The dykes of group A have compositions that are similar to rapakivi related dykes, while those of group B are different from most rapakivi dykes in Fennoscandia. The calculated pole positions may suggest that the group B dykes are older than those of group A and both groups intruded within the time span 1.77 Ga to 1.50 Ga. The trend of the dykes is more or less parallell to a palaeo-compressional stress field that may be expected from the collisional tectonics related to the Gothian orogeny. The intrusion of the rapakivi formations in Fennoscandia has been suggested to be related with the Gothian orogeny and the intrusion of the dykes may thus be guided by the stress field generated by the collisional tectonics.

    The drift of the Fennoscandian and Ukrainian Shields during the Precambrian: a Palaeomagnetic analysis1993In: Tectonophysics, ISSN 0040-1951, E-ISSN 1879-3266, Vol. 223, no 3-4, p. 177-198Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A revised Precambrian (2.85-0.6 Ga) Apparent Polar Wander Path (APWP) for the Fennoscandian Shield, based on a new compilation and analysis of data, is presented. In fitting the APW path to successive Grand Mean Palaeomagnetic poles (GMPs), we applied the spherical spline technique originally developed by Jupp and Kent in 1987. The position and orientation of the Fennoscandian Shield during 2.85-0.6 Ga was determined from the GMPs. Major palaeoclimatological findings are used to constrain the palaeomagnetic interpretation of palaeolatitudes. The general drift of Fennoscandia, from relatively high latitudes in the late Archaean-Early Proterozoic to nearly equatorial latitudes in the Middle Proterozoic, correlates with palaeoclimatological indications that a period of cold climate was followed by one of warm climate during this time interval. From the continuous APWP the APW velocities and latitudinal drift velocities of the shield were calculated. An accumulated APW curve was also calculated. The palaeomagnetic data are irregularly distributed and some periods are rather poorly represented. This means that the calculated velocities can sometimes be artifacts of sampling. Late Archaean and Early Proterozoic (2.85-1.90 Ga) data are too sparse to make these calculations meaningful and velocity calculations are therefore restricted to data of 1.90 Ga and younger ages. The accumulated APW curve shows a number of linear segments with varying slopes, indicating sudden changes in drift rate. During the Middle Proterozoic (1.90-1.35 Ga) there was a period when the rate of APW was constant and low and that of latitudinal drift also was low. This pattern changed at ca. 1.35 Ga, and the following Middle-Late Proterozoic period can be described by rapid APW and strongly fluctuating drift velocities. Jotnian rifting and the intrusion of numerous dyke swarms (at ca. 1.25 Ga) correlate with this shift in rate. These changes are attributed to changes in plate configuration. A new database for the Ukrainian Shield is also presented, and GMPs in the 2.32-1.20 Ga range are defined. The database is still inadequate and the comparison of the Ukrainian and Fennoscandian drift histories is therefore tentative. Similarities in position, latitudinal drift and rotation during the Early-Middle Proterozoic are, nevertheless, evident. A close relationship between the shields in this period is consistent with the low APW rate of Fennoscandia, indicating that Fennoscandia may have been part of a larger continent, including the Ukraine, at that time. At ca. 1.2 Ga, the latitudinal position of Ukraine differed significantly from that of Fennoscandia, suggesting that the large shield split up between ca. 1.35 and 1.2 Ga. This would explain the change in APW rate at 1.35 Ga. The subsequent increase in rate was due to a reduction in the size of the shield. The discrepancy in palaeopositions of Fennoscandia and Ukraine at 1.2 Ga led Mikhailova and Kravchenko to suggest a late Precambrian time (1.07-0.57 Ga) for the accreation of Fennoscandia to the East European Platform (EEP). This may be correct as the rate of APW for Fennoscandia decreased in the late Precambrian, reflecting such a consolidation.

    A palaeomagnetic and 40Ar/39Ar study of mafic dykes in southern Sweden: A new Early Neoproterozoic key-pole for the Baltic Shield and implications for Sveconorwegian and Grenville loops2014In: Precambrian Research, ISSN 0301-9268, E-ISSN 1872-7433, Vol. 244, p. 192-206Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We present the results of palaeomagnetic and 40Ar/39Ar studies of the Proterozoic mafic dykes in the Norrköping and Falun areas of the southern Sweden. The primary remanence of two 939 ± 3 Ma dykes is supported by the rigorous baked contact test. The remanence direction of two other dykes, one of which was previously U-Pb dated at 946 ± 1 Ma is close to the reverse direction of 939 Ma dykes. Using these results together with previously published 935 ± 5 Ma palaeomagnetic data from the Göteborg-Slussen mafic dykes and some dykes from the Falun area we calculated the mean 946 -935 Ma palaeopole for Baltica (0.9°S, 240.7°E, A95 = 6.7), which can be qualified as the key pole. Using this pole together with other date we conclude that the Grenville and Sveconorwegian loops of Laurentian and Baltican Apparent Polar Wander Paths are temporary displaced by 100-150 m.y. We propose new palaeogeographic reconstructions of Baltica and Laurentia at ca. 940 Ma and ca. 850 Ma. We also present two new Mesoproterozoic non-key poles from 1410 Ma and 1595 Ma dykes.

    Results of magnetotelluric and gravimetric measurements in western Nicaragua, central America1997In: Geophysical Journal International, ISSN 0956-540X, E-ISSN 1365-246X, Vol. 128, no 3, p. 647-58Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Studies a ca. 170 km long traverse running from the Pacific coast of Nicaragua in the west to the Nicaraguan Highland in the east. This part of Nicaragua is characterized by sedimentary rocks of the Pacific Coastal Plain, separated from the Tertiary volcanic rocks of the Highland by the NW-SE-trending Nicaraguan Depression. The purpose of this study is to provide electric conductivity and density constraints on geological crustal structures along the transect. This may then serve as a base for the understanding of the tectonic evolution of this part of Central America. Questions to be answered are: (1) is the Pacific coastal province an accreted terrane? (2) What is the character of the depression? Is this a hidden contact between an accreted terrane and the continental Chortis block? (3) If so, is there a different physical signature for the crust of the Pacific province compared to that of the Highlands?

    New palaeomagnetic, age and geochemical data from basic dykes of the Ukrainian shield and the timing of accretion of Fennoscandia to the Ukrainian shield2008Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The east European craton (EEC) can be divided into three crustal segments, Sarmatia, Volgo-Uralia and Fennoscandia (Bogdanova, 1993). Lithological and age differences suggest that these segments have autonomous geological histories and various hypotheses have been presented for the time of formation of the EEC. Here we test a hypothesis of the Fennoscandian Shield being accreted to the Ukrainian Shield, which is a part of Sarmatia, for ca 1.8 Ga ago (Elming et al., 2001).This we do by palaeomagnetic, geochronological and geochemical studies of Palaeoproterozoic basic dykes in the Ukrainian Shield. We present palaeomagnetic results from 15 dykes and geochemical data from nine of them. The palaeomagnetic and geochemical data indicate at least three different generations of dykes and Ar39-Ar40 and U-Pb (zircon) age determinations have been done on dykes from two of these dyke generations.The calculated palaeomagnetic poles, some of the defined as key poles, are combined with poles calculated from anorthosites, gabbros and sedimentary rocks to form a ca 2.2 to 1.7 Ga sequence of apparent polar wander (APW) for the Ukrainian Shield. The tectonic reconstructions based on these palaeomagnetic data support the hypothesis that the Ukrainian Shield accreted to the Fennoscandian Shield at ca 1.8 Ga, however it later rotated into its present position relative Fennoscandia. This tectonic scenario is discussed with reference to geological data.

    Proterozoic basic dykes in the Ukrainian shield: a palaeomagnetic, geochronologic and geochemical study – the accretion of the Ukrainian Shield to Fennoscandia2010In: Precambrian Research, ISSN 0301-9268, E-ISSN 1872-7433, Vol. 178, no 1-4, p. 119-135Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A palaeomagnetic, geochronologic and geochemical study of basic dykes in the Ukrainian Shield has been undertaken with the purpose of testing a hypothesis for timing of accretion of the Ukrainian Shield with Fennoscandia. On the basis of geological data it has been suggested that the two shields amalgamated at ca. 1900 to 1800 Ma. With this study of 11 basic dykes the palaeomagnetic database for the Ukrainian Shield is extended. The palaeomagnetic data indicate three generations of dykes. This is supported by the age data and the difference in geochemical compositions. Ages of two ca. 25 m wide dykes (Susly) in the North-Western Block of the shield have been determined, one for which a positive palaeomagnetic field test is demonstrated. The lower of the two 40Ar/39Ar hornblende ages of this dyke, 2061± 20 Ma, is similar to the U-Pb, zircon age of the granitic host rock (ca 2067 Ma, U-Pb, zircon), which suggests that the dyke intruded shortly after crystallization of the granite. Combined with the magnetization of the baked contact and that of another dyke a new ca 2060 Ma pole is presented (Plat. = 15.7o, Plon. = 182.9o, A95 = 13.7o), which may be regarded as a VGP. An U-Pb age of 1722 ± 12 Ma of baddeleyite from the Khmelnik dyke, which yields a well-defined VGP, is similar to the age of nearby anorthosite complexes. A new 1740–1770 Ma key pole for the Ukranian Shield is also presented (Plat. = 26.5o, Plon. = 169.1o, A95 = 3.9o). On the basis of palaeomagnetic and geochronological data a 2060 Ma to 1720 Ma apparent polar wander for the Ukrainian Shield is defined. This apparent polar wander is significantly different from that of Fennoscandia during the same time interval and indicates that the two shields were not in their present relative positions at ca. 1770 Ma. A scenario is here proposed where the Ukrainian Shield (and Sarmatia) collided with Fennoscandia at ca. 1900–1800 Ma and after that event, at ca. 1720–1660 Ma, it rotated approximately 43o into its present position.

    The blue road geotraverse: a magnetic ground survey and the interpretation of magnetic anomalies1976In: GFF, ISSN 1103-5897, E-ISSN 2000-0863, Vol. 98, p. 264-270Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ground measurements of the magnetic field were carried out along a 20-km-wide zone along the Blue Road Geotraverse. In addition, a profile of high precision was measured. A large positive anomaly within the mountain area cannot be explained by anomalous magnetization of surface rocks. Optimization of theoretical models shows that it may have its origin at a depth of 30 km, indicating a rise of the Curie isothermal surface from the mountain area to the Baltic shield. The rise of the isotherm may be connected with the land uplift. Interpretation of smaller anomalies reveals the thickness of sedimentary layers
