      Abstract. The variation in subsidence rate during a rifts active life is probably a good indication of the rifts geodynamical history and can contribute towards an understanding Cited by: 9. East African Rift System, also called Afro-Arabian Rift Valley, one of the most extensive rifts on Earth’s surface, extending from Jordan in southwestern Asia southward through eastern Africa to Mozambique. The system is some 4, miles (6, km) long and averages 30–40 miles (48–64 km) wide.

      A rift valley is a linear shaped lowland between several highlands or mountain ranges created by the action of a geologic rift or fault.A rift valley is formed on a divergent plate boundary, a crustal extension or spreading apart of the surface, which is subsequently further deepened by the forces of erosion. Sediment infill within rift basins: Facies distribution and effects of deformation: Examples from the Kenya and Tanganyika Rifts, East Africa.

      The East African Rift System is one of the most outstanding and significant rift systems on Earth and transects the high-elevation Ethiopian and East African plateaux. Rifting putatively developed as a result of mantle plume activity that initiated below East Africa. The seismically and volcanically active East African rift system is a system of faultbounded sedimentary basins and uplifted flanks spanning the African continent from the Horn of Africa to southern Africa. outline the complex interplay between tectonically induced vertical crustal movements, climate, erosion, and sedimentation in rift Cited by:

The concept of the East African rift fracture in when. ABSTRACT A complex history of crustal. In geology, a rift is a linear zone where the lithosphere is being pulled apart and is an example of extensional tectonics.

Typical rift features are a central linear downfaulted depression, called a graben, or more commonly a half-graben with normal faulting and rift-flank uplifts mainly on one side. [citation needed] Where rifts remain above sea level they form a rift valley, which may be.

From the late Jurassic onwards, Gondwana rifted resulting in the African plate as we now know it, with most tectonic activity controlled by extension and hot spot.

In example 2, shallow-water lacustrine sedimentation is predicted. For the basin capacity and available sediment supply shown in this example, no very deep lakes are possible because the excess capacity of the basin (and thus lake depth) is limited.
