The contribution of the Tectonics/Structural geology group to the IBS project is focusing on the development of modelling concepts and tools incorporating the role of stresses and non-linear rheology in basin formation models [2,3,4,5] Basinwide modelling of the kinematics of extension demonstrates the key role played by the finite strength of the lithosphere in the development of rift shoulder topography [11,13].
