Video Presentation

The Tectonic Evolution of Africa - New insights into margin evolution from potential fields data

Talk Description
As part of Getech’s Globe new ventures platform, Getech has been carrying out detailed Tectonic Evolution studies at a regional scale in a number of areas. Most recently, in 2013, Getech completed Tectonic Evolution reports for the Equatorial Atlantic and South Atlantic and we are continuing the series with a report for the East Africa margin. These reports add to Getech’s existing reports for the East African Rift System and North Africa to provide a complete structural and tectonic coverage for the whole of Africa.

The Tectonic Evolution reports are typically separated into three technical aspects:

1) Structural mapping at 1:100,000 scale, underpinned by Getech’s extensive gravity and magnetic data.

2) Verifying this interpretation with the aid of 2D gravity and magnetic profiles and regional depth-to-basement grids.

3) Integrating this data into the global plate model.

The talk draws on examples from the Tectonic Evolution reports for East African and the South Atlantic to show how this workflow has led to new insights into the evolution of these margins.
