In the framework of the multi-disciplinary Inkaba yeAfrica initiative a number of geophysical experiments have been carried out across the continental margins of Southern Africa. Across the southern margin the so-called Agulhas-Karoo Geoscience Transect extends from the offshore Agulhas Plateau, across Southern Africa’s sheared margin, across the Cape Fold Belt and into the Karoo Basin. Across the western margin, a classic volcanic rifted margin, the Springbok profile was conducted across the offshore Orange Basin, extending to the onshore exposure of the Gariep Belt. Goals of the experiments included broadening our understanding of the features crossed by the transects, especially in the framework of formation of Southern Africa’s margins and the break-up of Gondwana.
