The Niger Delta has three major depositional prisms: (1) a Cretaceous deltaic complex developed 600 miles inland from the mouth of the Niger Delta, (2) a Late Cretaceous to Palaeogene "proto Niger" delta complex formed seawards of the earlier delta, and (3) the younger Cenozoic complex built out over newly formed oceanic crust as the South Atlantic opened during the separation of the South American and African tectonic plates.

Among the topics are projected future climate changes in the context of geological and geomorphological hazards, evidence from Sicily's Mount Etna for climate change and collapsing volcanoes, multiple effects of ice load changes and associated stress change on magmatic systems, whether El Nino--southern oscillation influences earthquake activity in the eastern tropical Pacific, high-mountain slope failures and recent and future warm extreme events, and a view from the Palaeogene on methane hydrate instability.

The EFS fault zone has been repeatedly reactivated since the Late Variscan orogeny in different regimes: transtensional at the turn of the Permian and Triassic, extensional in the Mesozoic, and transpressional at the turn of the Late Cretaceous and Palaeogene (Otto, 2003).
As far as the understanding of the group's biogeography goes, the idea of a Boreotropical flora widely distributed in the Northern Hemisphere during the Palaeogene and Early Neogene is again central.

In a recent study using palaeogeographic reconstructions and palaeo-oceanographic modelling, Ali and Huber (2010) concluded that strong surface currents flowed from north-east Mozambique and Tanzania eastwards towards Madagascar during the Palaeogene, and concord perfectly with conditions favourable for "sweepstake" dispersal of founder individuals from continental Africa.
