Description:

Tectonics of the central South West Africa.

Summary / Notes:

Der Gesteinsuntergrund des mittleren Südwestafrika weist eine NO-SW gerichtete Struktur auf. Nahezu sämtliche Bewegungs-Vorgänge vom ältesten Archäikum abwärts sind dieser Grundrichtung gefolgt. Die ältesten Faltungsvorgänge im Präkambrium stehen im Zusammenhang mit gewaltigen Intrusionen vorwiegend granitischer Gesteine. Nachdem der Kontinent durch diese Vorgänge bereits am Ende des Archäikums in NO-SW-Richtung konsolidiert war, erfolgten in postarchäischer Zeit Krustenbewegungen, die sich ebenfalls dieser Richtung anpassen. Auffällig ist die randliche Aufwulstung des Kontinents in diesem Abschnitt und deren NO-SW gerichtete Querverbiegung, die stellenweise von großen Brüchen begleitet wird. Diese Bruchtektonik scheint jedoch wenigstens im mittleren Südwestafrika nicht das vonStahl angenommene Ausmaß erreicht zu haben. Die vonKrenkel angenommene große Überschiebungslinie am Südrande des Khomas-Hochlandes konnte als nicht vorhanden nachgewiesen werden. Das durch die Vergitterung der randlichen Aufwulstung und der NO-SW gerichteten Querverbiegung am höchsten herausgehobene Gebiet ist das Khomas-Hochland, dessen Anlage als Resistenzscholle bis ins älteste Archäikum zurückzuverfolgen ist.
