Abstract

The South Scotia Ridge (SSR) is a submerged structural high located at the eastern continuation of the Antarctic Peninsula and representing the Scotia-Antarctica transform plate boundary. A three-dimensional geological model of a sector of the SSR was built using reflection seismic and sea-floor bathymetry. The model covers the boundary between the oceanic crust of the Scotia Sea and the continental crust of the South Scotia Ridge, where the orientation of the SSR structure changes from SW-NE to W-E. Most of the active faults are located within the continental crust, however, deformation locally involves the oceanic crust and appears connected to the orientation and geometry of the fault system which defines the continent-ocean boundary. - (NF)
