Integrating structural and sedimentological observations with numerical lithospheric models to assess the 3D evolution of the South African continental passive margin

Katja K. Hirsch
Although the development of passive margins has been extensively studied over a number of decades, significant questions remain on how mantle and crustal dynamics interact to generate the observed margin geometries. Here, the Orange Basin, located on the south-west African continental margin is investigated. The basin fill is considered to comprise a classic rift-drift passive margin sequence recording the break-up of Gondwana and subsequent opening of the South Atlantic Ocean. Based on interpreted seismic reflection...
