Mesozoic rifting of the South Atlantic produced a succession of five distinct tectonic regimes: Prerift, Synrift (I and II), Postrift, and Regional Subsidence. These tectonic episodes are recognized in the sedimentary section of Cabinda, Angola. Each has a characteristic structural style and stratigraphy and is bounded by a major unconformity. The total sequence reaches a maximum cumulative thickness of about 12,000 m and ranges in age from Jurassic to Holocene.
