Palaeomagnetism of the tororo ring complex, S.E. Uganda
Palaeomagnetic measurements on the pre-Miocene carbonatite volcanics of Tororo, S.E. Uganda, have yielded a pole at 75.8°N, 195.5°E with A95 = 9.4°. Along with the Tertiary poles from East African rift systems, the Eocene-Oligocene pole from Ethiopia and the mean Mesozoic pole from the rest of Africa, a polar wander path for Africa fromMesozoic to present is suggested.
