Structural and microtectonic analyses of the basins along the continental margin of Yemen reveal that these basins, formed during the Jurassic and the Cretaceous, have been reactivated from Late Oligocene to Early Miocene with an average stretching direction trending N20jE. However, a late syn-rift, N160jE trending extensional event also occurs along the margin over more than 1000 km between Oman and Djibouti. We interpret this extension, which is perpendicular to the overall trend of the gulf of Aden, as induced by the westward propagation of the oceanic ridge, following a mechanism similar to a tension crack, but of lithospheric scale (Manighetti et al., 1997, 1998; Courtillot et al., 1999).
