The Nysa-Morava Zone: an active tectonic domain with Late Cenozoic sedimentary grabens

The map forming two major Horst structure at eastern side together with the two Grabens
The sedimentation in the grabens
begins with the rise of the main horst.
The Edremit Graben
is one of the largest E-W trending grabens
of western Anatolia.
These are mainly located in Bas-Congo, along its Atlantic Ocean coastline, the Central Basin, the Albertine Graben
and the Tanganyika Graben
Estos hechos dieron lugar a una tectonica de horst y grabens
, que posibilitaron la creacion de espacios de acomodacion individualizados y compartimentados (Alonso Gavilan, 1981).
5 were calculated in regions 18, 24, 35, 37 and 42; these zones were covered by the northern part of Cyprus, the Mugla and Rhodes region, the Kutahya and Simav grabens
(KSG) and the Etili fault (EF).
The upland landform was an isolated volcanic range surrounded by plains and grabens
filled with Pleistocene alluvium (Labarthe et al.
Pit-chains can also be caused by strains in the Martian crust, which translates into a series of parallel elongated depressions known as grabens
, in which pits can also form.
1), in depositional basins where lacustrine shales and coal deposits fill grabens
associated with uplift and regional volcanism (Ewing 1980).
The Sabatayn Basin is a NW-SE trending rift basin comprising a series of asymmetric half grabens
 which are thought to have inherited the Precambrian Najd trend of strike-slip faults.
