Abstract :

In this study we will examine the evolution of the Upemba Rift in relationship to the tectonics of the region and conclude on the fault alignments in the Rift. The methods used for this study include remote sensing and processing by Geographic Information System, using ArcGIS 10.8 software. As results, the Upemba Rift, compared to the tectonics of this region, does not consist of a single fault in a straight segment but it is composed of two compound normal faults located on either side of the Rift in the depression delimited by some lakes. Hence, the Upemba Rift is considered as an aborted rift because its extension movement stopped several years ago.
