East Africa margin in Petroleum Geoscience

The meeting dedicated to the East Afric Margin, held at the Geological Society in London in April 2016, has led to a dedicated volume of the journal Petroleum Geoscience. The contribution by Colin Reeves is entitled The development of the East African margin during Jurassic and Lower Cretaceous times: a perspective from global tectonics. This paper was released recently online under the doi  http://doi.org/10.1144/petgeo2017-021.

The paper includes all the Euler rotation parameters for the reconstruction model, including revisions made up to October 2017, model CR17AAHH.  This model is illustrated by the animation accessible on the Gondwana page of this website.

The abstract of the paper appears below where it is followed by a single frame from the animation at 90 Ma (Turonian).
