Abstract/Summary

The East African passive margin resulted from a complex reactivation of the ca. 600-500 Ma East African-Antarctic Orogen (EAAO). We have modeled the exhumation history of the wider margin in a critical area in northern Mozambique, where the margin zigzags, following pre-existing structures of the EAAO. In northern Mozambique, the EAAO is represented by two tectonically very different domains. These are separated by the Luiro Belt, a distinct lineament oblique to the length of the orogen
