We present a crustal-scale seismic profile in the Barents Sea based on new data. Wide-angle seismic data were recorded along a 600 km long profile at 38 ocean bottom seismometer and 52 onshore station locations. The modelling uses the joint refraction/ reflection tomography approach where co-located multichannel seismic reflection data constrain the sedimentary structure. Further, forward gravity modelling is based on the seismic model. We also calculate net regional erosion based on the calculated shallow velocity structure.
