In the southern Moroccan Atlas, abundant volcanic and sedimentary formations, dated from the Ediacaran to Cambrian time, were set at the northwestern Paleo-Gondwanan margin, after the main Pan-African orogenic event. The Precambrian-Cambrian geodynamic transition is characterized by an Early Cambrian marine transgression. We examine the tectonic conditions of this transgression and the magmatic signatures of the volcanic rocks that were produced just before and around the Precambrian-Cambrian boundary. Significant angular unconformities are evidenced, between the Late Neoproterozoic formations and the Cambrian deposits, in the central and eastern Anti-Atlas, which are due to a late Ediacaran NNE-SSW compressional event. The Late...
