Abstract

This region is apparently an unusual passive margin setting. Climatic fluctuations, local volcanism, and possible tectonics have played important roles in the sedimentary record in this region. The Mesozoic evolution of the uniformly subsiding, 12-15km thick 'Cape Bojador margin basin' can be compared with the history of the contingent eastern North American margin (Baltimore Canyon Trough to Newfoundland Shelf Basin), whereas the Neogene history shows marked differences due to regional abnormalities at the northwest African margin. -from AuthorsEnglish
