Synopsis

This project brings together a number of facets of investigation in the Malawi Rift, EARS. The growth and linkage of basin-bounding and intra-basin structures are evaluated from seiscmic reflection profiles (both PROBE and in collaboration with Chris Scholz some shallow seismic profiles of a later vintage). These data reveal contrasting structural styles for the north and central basins of the rift, as well as highlighting the importance of long-lived structural heterogeneity on the orientation and faulting styles of the Cenozoic rift. Furthermore, we show the fragmentation of once connected syn-rift basins as the rift evolved and strike-slip deformation localised onto cross-cutting fabrics. 

In addition to this, and in collaboration with Manfred Strecker, a thermochronology study (low temperature) was undertaken from the exhuming footwall of the Livingstone Mountains (Karonga basin eastern bounding fault). This fault has a long-lived structural history revealled from existing AFT data. In our study AHe data show for the first time that fault segmentation revealled in the seismic profile analysis is also recorded (and preserved) in the AHe ages and the pattern of footwall exhumation.

Synopsis

The Rukwa Rift is situated at the southern margin of the Tanzanian Craton, and has long been considered an inter-continental transfer zone between the Tanganyika and Malawi Rifts. The origin and kinematics of this Tanganyika-Rukwa-Malawi (TRM) transfer zone is highly debated: specifically the strain partitioning between strike-slip and orthogonal faulting. Is the Rukwa rift a dextral shear zone?

Utilising new and newly processed seismic reflection and magnetic survey data, we examine the Rukwa rift, with a focus on the Permo-Triassic Karroo development of structures here and propagating south toward the Malawi Rift, in addition to the Cenozoic rift basins.

Synopsis

The Loreto Basin, Baja California Sur forms part of the Gulf Extensional Province (GEP) within the Gulf of Mexico. In this basin the depositional architecture and sedimentology of a series of correlatable, well exposed deltas have been investigated (PhD Mortimer, with S.Gupta and P.A.Cowie). Their architecture, specifically a transition from shelf to Gilbert-type delta, combined with palaeoslope analyses, reveals a tectonic control on this transition. Specifically, the fault behaviour must be episodic at 10 kyr cycles. This has important implications for earthquake hazard analysis as this fault must go through episodes of more frequent or greater magnitude earthquakes at the 10 kyr frequency.

In addition, the evolution of the footwall scarp: its rate of retreat and incision through the footwall lithologies, have been investigated in conjunction with the hanging-wall basin fill (Mortimer, in collaboration with B. Carrapa). For the first time, a provenance investigation has been used to constrain the evolution of a normal fault bordering a rift system.

Inversion Tectonics, Compressional Systems

Principle Investigators: Dr Paton, D

Synopsis

In subareal fold-and-thrust belts, where the erosional rate is higher than the sedimentation one, the poor preservation of the pre-kinematic section precludes the conventional kinematic restoration guided by the growth strata geometry. Such is the case of the Eastern Cordillera of Colombia and Foothill, particularly in the high elevations of the frontal system. To tackle this limitation in this research we apply low-temperature thermochronometers; Apatite and Zircon Fission Track; to quantify the structural deformation of this orogenic belt. The 3D models of the Present-Day deformation are constructed in base on serial 2D balanced structural sections, and subsequently restored in 9 evolutionary stages, from Upper Cretaceous to Recent.

Additionally, the kinematic vectors generated after every restoration stage - are used to predict paleogeographies in which stratigraphic facies are restored to their syn-kinematic locations. By applying this integrated approach it is possible to constrain the lateral distribution of source rock and reservoir fairways within a complex structural setting, thereby reducing uncertainly in both exploration and production phases.
