Abstract

The process of formation of sedimentary basins is considered as a result of long term vertical movements and is partitioned into two stages. The first one is essentially the formation of a depression in which water and sediments collect. The second stage is the process of isostatic adjustment. A numerical model of the initial subsidence of sedimentary basins is presented. This model is realized by the solution of the coupled two-dimensional time dependent equations of viscous motion and of heat transport in the lithosphere-asthenosphere system characterized by nonlinear rheological features. Besides the formation of the depressions themselves, the approach makes it possible to treat a number of accompanying processes. As an illustration, the approach is applied to the formation of the Pannonian basin.
