Gabon Regional Structural Framework

Gabon Regional Structural Framework


This regional interpretation of western Gabon is based on our interpretation of satellite-derived gravity data offshore, digital topography onshore, and a compilation of published data both offshore and onshore. Important features include a series of basins and high blocks trending subparallel to and subnormal to the coastline. An important conclusion is that if appropriately compiled, processed, and interpreted, public source data can be used to provide an early-stage and cost-effective aid to regional geologic understanding of a large area. Details can be verified, added, or reinterpreted as data from new and more intensive geologic/geophysical programs.
