Geological Society Special Publication 91

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 twelve chapters of this volume introduce and discuss the emerging evidence for the differing styles of Permo-Triassic rifting around North­west Europe. A number go on to discuss how this rifting influenced sedimentation and how it related to igneous activity in some areas.
