Structural features of the Southwest African continental margin according to results of lithosphere-scale 3D gravity and thermal modelling

Abstract:

To understand the structure of the Southwest African continental margin, a lithosphere-scale 3D structural model has been developed, covering the marginal Cretaceous-Cenozoic Orange, Luderitz, Walvis and Namibe basins, the easternmost Walvis Ridge offshore. Onshore, the model includes two late-Proterozoic Owambo (Etosha) and Nama basins. This 3D model integrates published thickness maps (sediment isopach maps), shallow seismic and well data as well as published deep seismic information and ha...
