Reflection seismic profile in North-Western Namibia. Continuation of project LISPWAL which aims to decipher the lithospheric structure of the Namibian passive margin at the intersection with the Walvis ridge. Scientific aims: High resolution image of lower-crustal high-velocity body revealed by wide-angle observations; Improved understanding of how continental crust and plume head interact, what the extent and volumes of magmatic underplating is, and how and which inherited (continental) structures might have been involved and utilized in the break up process.
