Seismic profiles across the Plateau show a sedimentary wedge that has prograded NE-ward from the direction of the adjacent transform fault of the Cape Range fracture zone. We postulate that, by analogy with the structure along the Gulf of Aqaba-Dead Sea system, this wedge was derived from the continental rim that formed just NE of an active extensional transform fault marked by a deep cleft across which sediment was unlikely to be transferred from one plate to the other.
