This version of the VERNOB-03 profile across the continental margin of Namibia supports a structural investigation that compares the amount of extension with the amount of contraction generated during gravity tectonics. The scenes consider the thrust belt and extensional domains independently, while the higher resolution image of the thrust belt may be used to assess the presence of d...
