Neotectonic and morphotectonic implications of the Nile Delta basin, Egypt

Tectonic geomorphology

Description :
The effect of the Late Cenozoic tectonics (neotectonics) and their associated morphotectonics on the Nile Delta basin since the Late Miocene are discussed. The Nile Delta site seems to be affected by basement-related tectonics as it is located in a downwarped basin with numerous active normal faults. This activity can be attributed to the continuous convergence of Eurasian and African plates. However, regular geodetic measurements are necessarily required to qualify the recent movements of the Nile Delta faults.
