Recent Ocean Drilling Program sampling of the Cote d'Ivoire-Ghana margin of West Africa provides for the first time the opportunity to study the development of a marginal ridge that formed along a sheared passive margin adjacent to the continent-ocean transition after the end of intracontinental wrenching. We model its evolution using a two dimensional flexural backstripping technique. The model is constrained by existing seismic refraction and reflection data on the crustal structure and… 

Subsidence and isostasy along a sheared margin—Cauvery Basin, Eastern Continental Margin of India

We have applied a process‐oriented method to a seismo‐geological section across Cauvery Basin, a sedimentary basin along the southern part of the Eastern Continental Margin of India (ECMI) to examine

No major thermal event on the mid‐Cretaceous Côte d’Ivoire–Ghana Transform Margin

Transient mid‐Cretaceous thermal uplift induced by lateral heating from passing oceanic lithosphere is often invoked as a mechanism for the formation of the Côte d’Ivoire–Ghana basement ridge in the

Denudation of the Côte d'Ivoire‐Ghana transform continental margin from apatite fission tracks

Apatite fission track analysis of samples from the shoulder (marginal ridge) of the Côte d'Ivoire‐Ghana transform continental margin reveal a cooling of the margin between 85 and 65 Ma for the

Long-term evolution of the West African transform margin: estimates of denudation from Benin using apatite thermochronology

The Benin continental margin was formed during the breakup of Gondwana through oblique rifting along transform faults. The evolution of topography following breakup directly affects the evolution of

CRETACEOUS RIFTING OF THE GHANA TRANSFORM MARGIN – EVIDENCE FROM ONSHORE APATITE FISSION TRACK DA TA AND OPTIMUM THERMAL HISTORY MODELS

The rock samples of the granitoid at the marginal ridge of the Ghanaian shelf within La Côte d’ Ivoire continental transform margin, have been studied using fission tracks in apatite. The ages of the

The stratigraphic evolution of the Indus Fan and the history of sedimentation in the Arabian Sea

The Indus Fan records the erosion of the western Himalayas and Karakoram since India began to collide with Asia during the Eocene, ∼50 Ma. Multi-channel seismic reflection data from the northern

Controls on the tectono-magmatic evolution of a volcanic transform margin: the Vøring Transform Margin, NE Atlantic

Ocean bottom seismograph (OBS), multichannel seismic and potential field data reveal the structure of the Vøring Transform Margin (VTM). This transform margin is located at the landward extension of

Erosion and flexural uplift along transform faults

SUMMARY In all geodynamic settings (intracontinental, continent‐ocean, intraoceanic), the main morphological feature of transform plate boundaries is a narrow and elongated valley bounded on at least

In the northeast Atlantic, DSDP drilling results, combined with intensive geophysical surveys, permit a proposed model of the structural evolution of a starved, passive continental margin.

We present a numerical pure-shear stretching model to study the effect of the “depth of lithospheric necking” on the state of flexure at extensional basins. This model avoids the need for low
