    Abstract: A study of predominantly folding structures was carried out on a number of outcrops in the Kimbi area. The main aim of this study is to provide a detailed structural characterization of the three folding events (F1, F2-F3) recognized in this area, in order to improve our understanding of the deformation mechanisms that controlled the tectonic evolu...

    Abstract: The quality of GNSS data is very significant for determining the locations and kinematic structures of the station points. Therefore, the quality of the measurements needs to be high as well as the geological stratigraphy and the continuity of tectonic mechanism in subsurface of the point where the GNSS station is built should be investigated in de...
