[1] The Beattie Magnetic Anomaly (BMA) and the Southern Cape Conductive Belt (SCCB), two of Earth's largest continental geophysical anomalies, extend across the southern African continent in an east‐west direction. To resolve structural details of the SCCB, a high‐resolution magnetotelluric study was conducted in March , along a ‐km‐long N‐S profile across the Karoo Basin in.

    The Karoo Basin and adjacent Cape Fold Belt of South Africa record tectonism along the western Gondwanan margin from the Carboniferous through the Jurassic dissection of the Pangean supercontinent. Previous studies have suggested that the Karoo Basin may be a retroarc foreland.

The Cape Fold Belt provides a unique opportunity in Southern Africa to examine reactivation tectonics along inherited crustal lineaments. During the Lower Palaeozoic inversion of a Pan African mobile belt flanking the southern margin of Africa, a basin was created into which the Cape Supergroup Format: Hardcover.

Inversion tectonics of the Cape Fold Belt, Karoo. Abstract. The Cape Fold Belt (CFB) is a km long fold-and-thrust mountain belt along the western and southern coastlines of South Africa.

A limited understanding of the sedimentary provenance history and poor constraints on the timing of deformation has restricted the ability to provide a coherent tectonic model for the evolution of the CFB.

The Permian Cape Fold Belt (CFB) of South Africa forms part of a major orogenic belt that originally extended from Argentina, across southern Africa and into Antarctica.

The Cape and Karoo basins formed within the continental interior more than km from the plate edge. Basin formation was controlled by the strength and anisotropy of rigid blocks of Precambrian basement and the crustal faults between them (Fig. 4, Fig. Subsidence history analysis and forward modelling of the Cape and Karoo Supergroups.

The Tanqua fan complex forms part of the Permian Ecca Group basin fill in the western part of the southwestern Karoo Basin, South Africa (Figure 1).The outcrops cover an area of approximately km 2 and are almost undisturbed tectonically, with a 2–4° dip to the east.

These deposits offer a unique combination of superbly exposed large-scale stratigraphy and internal facies architecture. The Lower Jurassic aeolienites of the Clarens Formation in southern Africa contain unique sedimentary structures that are unlikely to be non-biogenic. the Cape Fold Belt, Karoo and Cretaceous.This concentration of the super-continent resulted in the formation of the Cape Fold Belt (CFB) in addition to two foreland subbasins: the Tanqua and Laingsburg subbasins (Wickens, ; Fig.
