The East African Rift valley runs from Ethiopia southward, creating some of Africa’s largest lakes, such as Lake Tanganyika. This rift is a result of the eastern area of Africa diverging from the western area. Geologists debate whether this means that Africa is in fact composed of two.

Geological observations in the Neogene extensional basins of the Mediterranean region reveal that extension started synchronously from west to east 30–25 Myr ago.

In the western Mediterranean it started in the Gulf of Lion, Valencia trough, and Alboran Sea as well as between the Maures massif and Corsica between 33 and 27 Ma ago. Boundaries. The western edge of the African Plate is a divergent boundary with the North American Plate to the north and the South American Plate to the south which forms the central and southern part of the Mid-Atlantic African Plate is bounded on the northeast by the Arabian Plate, the southeast by the Somali Plate, the north by the Eurasian Plate, the Aegean Sea Plate, and the Features: Africa, Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean Sea.

A vast scientific literature is available for the Cenozoic geological and magmatological evolution of the Central–Western Mediterranean (Fig.

1, Fig. 2), with nearly all the most important geological formations, structures, igneous and metamorphic rocks having been described in the crustal and the upper mantle structure have been investigated using seismic and seismological data Cited by: In order to emphasize the general interest of the book, we finally retain the following title: Continental Evolution: The Geology of Morocco.

Structure, Stratigraphy, and Tectonics of the Africa-Atlantic-Mediterranean Triple junction. The editing and production of. Thomas J. Krupa () is the author of Biblical Flood, Noah’s Ark and the Star of David [], in which he makes a number of startling claims.

The book begins with an attack on the theory of plate tectonics. He then moves on to the opening of Drake Passage (a), conventionally considered to have taken place around 40 million years, but dated by Krupa to j years ago, eventually.

Geological observations in the Neogene extensional basins of the Mediterranean region reveal that extension started synchronously from west to east 30–25 Myr ago.

In the western Mediterranean it started in the Gulf of Lion, Valencia trough, and Alboran Sea as well as between the Maures massif and Corsica between 33 and 27 Ma by:. During the late Mesozoic and the Cenozoic, the Mediterranean region experienced complex subduction events and associated collisions, resulting in mountain building and plateau formation, magmatism, foreland and hinterland deformation, foreland flexures and sedimentary basin evolution, escape tectonics, orogenic collapse and lithospheric-scale extension, and the opening of small ocean basins.Western Asia, West Asia, Southwestern Asia or Southwest Asia, is the westernmost subregion of includes Anatolia, the Arabian Peninsula, Iran, the Levant, Mesopotamia, the Sinai Peninsula and region is considered to be separated from Africa by the Isthmus of Suez adjacent to Israel and separated from Europe by the waterways of the Turkish Straits and the drainage Calling code: Zone 9 except Armenia, Cyprus (Zone 3) & .Shale tectonics is a relatively common term that encompasses any deformation involving overpressured, undercompacted, fine-grained sediments.

Compared with the processes involved in salt tectonics (see the recent review of Hudec and Jackson, ), shale tectonics also includes deformation driven only by density contrasts, promoting shale upwelling and withdrawal (e.g., Andrews,
