Igneous intrusions, such as dykes, sills and laccoliths, are important components of volcanic plumbing systems in extensional tectonic settings, e.g. rifted margins and sedimentary basins. Even though sills have been studied for the last decades, questions regarding their architecture, flow conditions, inflation and relationship to sedimentary heterogeneity remains unanswered.


This project aims to provide a detailed study on excellent outcrops around the world, seismic data from the Vøring Margin, in addition to LIDAR data from Greenland, in order to answer the remaining questions regarding sill emplacement.
