Abstract

Many pre-Quaternary terrains persist in the contemporary landscape. Tertiary volcanic plains and plateaux are widespread in the Eastern Uplands and duricrusted (ferruginised, silicified) remnants, some of them folded, are characteristic of many parts of the central and western sectors of the continent. Drainage systems of similar age are also increasingly recognised. Older, Gondwana also feature prominently but especially in the Eastern Uplands and on the Craton. Some of these ancient elements are exhumed but others are epigene and etched, though the so-called epigene surface are mostly of etch type
