Description

The vast Kalahari Basin is characterised by uplifted margins, terrestrial sedimentation within semi endorheic sub-basins, subdued morphology and tectonic quiescence. This intracratonic basin has been subjected to a prolonged period of subsidence affecting its sedimentary fill by plate motion and climatic cycles. Provenance studies of Kalahari Group sediments mainly focused on the surficial deposits that represent only the last phase of sedimentation, leaving unresolved questions related to the rest of the strata.

Summary

The basin is underexplored, and is a highly prospective target which will need to be accessed to promote energy security for the host countries.
