Gondwana

African Geodynamics course

A two-page brochure may be downloaded  here.

First presented at the School of Geosciences at the University of Witwatersrand in October 2005, this workshop has been presented many times at various locations in Africa, Europe and North America ever since.  Constantly updated with new ideas from recent studies on different parts of Gondwana, it offers geologists and geophysicists at all levels of experience a new global insight into practical plate tectonics and provides a regional setting for the events of  Phanerozoic geoloogy of central Gondwana, particularly, sub-Saharan Africa and India. Emphasis is given to the evolution of the continental margins and internal rift basins as a result of the pattern of new ocean growth.

The version of the Course Notes used for the presentation in Rio de Janiero in 2015 may be downloaded [here].  The notes give a fairly extensive description of the main messages of the course but lack the graphics and animations from the Powerpoint presentations.
