The main stages of tectonic evolution of the Benue Trough are well documented in the stratigraphic succession, basically comprising three depositional sequences: an Albian-Cenomanian pyroclastic, paralic, shallow marine, and fluviatile sequence corresponding to the graben and transitional tectonic stages; a Turonian-Coniacian paralic, marine and fluviatile Cited by: The Benue Trough is conventionally subdivided into a “Lower Benue Trough”, “Abakaliki Trough” of Whiteman (), a “Middle Benue Trough” and an “Upper Benue Trough” (“Benue valley” respectively of Whiteman ().

The Benue Trough was terminated by a Late Santonian episode of compressional folding. The Gongola Basin (arm) of the Upper Benue Trough (Fig. 1) is a N-S trending arm of the km long Benue Trough. The mechanism of the formation of the Trough dominated most of the early studies carried out in the area and, although, still controversial.

There are many sources of underground water in the Middle Benue Trough, which have varying composition and constituents. Water samples from saline springs, boreholes, hand-dug wells and rivers / streams from the Middle Benue Trough are collected and analysed for cations, anions and heavy metals, using atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS); with aim of determining the Author: Mohammed Suleiman Chaanda, Ali Moumouni.

The Middle Benue Trough, Nigeria, is part of t he Benue Trough of Nigeria. The Benue Trough is The Benue Trough is a 1,k m northeast-south west trending intra-cratoni c rift structure. The West African Rift System is described as a ‘failed rift,’ as the northwestern extension of the Benue trough failed to open fully by the end of the rifting phase in the Late Cretaceous (Benkhelil and Robineau, ; Benkhelil,; Matheis, ; Genik, ; Nwajide, ).The tectonic phases of the formation of the rift basins along the two rift systems has been.

A review of high impact literature on the Southern Benue Trough and Anambra Basin was undertaken to enhance the understanding and definition of the basins in terms of their evolution. Benue trough The Benue trough (Fig. 1a) is a linear depression filled with up to m of Cretaceous (Albian-Maastrichtian) sediments.

The earlier (Albian-San-tonian) sediments in the trough are mainly marine in character and their deposition was terminated by an episode of deformation in the Santonian [I].Author: J. Fitton.
