Abstract Neoproterozoic crust is beautifully exposed in the Eastern Desert (ED) of Egypt as an unbroken rift-flank uplift extending ∼800 km between the Nile and the Red Sea, from near Cairo to the Sudan border. Different but related Neoproterozoic rocks are exposed in the northern, central and south Eastern Desert (NED, CED, and SED). Teleseismic data from four ED stations suggest that the crust is thin (28–33 km) and contains a mafic underplate ∼5 km thick at its base. The CED is the best… CONTINUE READING
