      The Campos Basin was formed as a result of the breakup of Gondwana in the Early Cretaceous. This was followed by subsequent infilling of the rift basin with as much as m of Early Cretaceous–Holocene sediments, as shown in the stratigraphic chart of Figure basin has several main structural elements (Figure 3): (1) northeast- and northwest-trending horsts and grabens . The geology of the Falkland Islands is described in several publications. The Falkland Islands are located on a projection of the Patagonian continental shelf. In ancient geological time this shelf was part of Gondwana, which around million years ago broke from what is now Africa and drifted westwards relative to Africa.

      Drilling in the Parana Basin and sampling of dikes around São Paulo revealed that the Serra Geral basalts and Kaoko basalts in Namibia both formed at the same time— million years ago—marking the beginning of the rifting open of the South Atlantic. Other articles where South Atlantic Ocean is discussed: Atlantic Ocean: The South Atlantic: Over the South Atlantic the belt of prevailing westerlies extends from about latitude 40° S almost to Antarctica, and the South Atlantic high-pressure area is centred around 30° S. This anticyclone (circulation of winds around a central region of high atmospheric pressure) leads.

        Geologic History of Florida chronicles the creation of the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea, the western Atlantic Ocean, and other major events in Florida s geologic past. It looks back million years, to a time when the ancient igneous and metamorphic basement rocks were covered by a large sedimentary carbonate platform nearly 3 miles /5(14).

Geology and geochronology of Inaccessible Island, South Atlantic. Inaccessible Island is the eroded remnant of an extinct, comparatively small intraplate volcano dominated by flows of alkaline olivine basalt.

This is a list of islands in the Atlantic Ocean, the largest of which is that the IHO definition of the ocean excludes the seas, gulfs, bays, etc., bordering the ocean itself. Thus, for instance, not all of the islands of the United Kingdom are actually in or bordering on the Atlantic.

For reference, islands in gulfs and seas are included in a separate section. Below: Myth • Formation • Resultant geology • Erosion: how we got the current island profile • Seamounts • Earthquakes • Geology-related • Read More The Myth.
