Abstract

The Cape Bojador region of the northwestern African continental margin is apparently an
unusual passive margin setting. Climatic fluctuations, local volcanism, and possibly tectonics
have played important roles in the sedimentary record in this region. A transect of drilling sites
connected by seismic profiles is available from the coastal Aaiun Basin (CORC 15-1), across the
shelf (Spansah 51A-1), on the continental slope (DSDP Site 369), the upper continental rise
(DSDP Site 397), farther out on the rise (e.g., DSDP Sites 139 and 140), and the abyssal plain
(DSDP Sites 137 and 138). These data allow construction of a profile perpendicular to the
margin, and reconstruction of the sedimentary evolution there.
