African Journal of Marine Science: KwaZulu-Natal Bight Supplement

The KwaZulu-Natal Bight is an offset in an otherwise 1 300 km curvilinear coastline on the east coast of South Africa. This offset, and associated expansion in shelf width, was caused by a change in the tectonic origin of the continental shelf margin, from a sheared to a short-rifted section, and is approximately 160 km long between Durban and Richards Bay.
