Basement geology and its controls on the nucleation and growth of rift faults in the northern campos basin, offshore Brazil

Abstract:

The rift phase of the Campos Basin developed during the Early Cretaceous on a heterogeneous crust comprising structures inherited from the Brasiliano‐Pan African tectonic events, mostly generated during the Neoproterozoic‐Cambrian amalgamation of western Gondwana blocks. The main rifting episode took place from the Hauterivian to the Barremian, then was succeeded by the transition and post‐rift (SAG) phases during the Aptian. Rift faults developed as a result of a progressive rotation of exte...
