A preliminary Geological and Generalized Stratigraphy of Western Margin of Northern Afar Depression, Dallol Area, Northern Ethiopia
The western margin of northern Afar Depression constitutes various rock units of Neoproterozoic basement complex, Paleozoic to Mesozoic sedimentary successions and the Oligocene to present volcano-sedimentary sequences. As part of a reconnaissance survey for mineral resources in selected districts of Afar region, a geological and structural map of Dallol area has been produced with the help of the Landsat Thematic Mapper Plus imagery at a scale of 1:100,000 and a simplified stratigraphy is constructed for the western rift margin, Dallol area.
Keywords: Geology, Stratigraphy, Western Rift Margin, Dallol, Northern Afar Depression, Ethiopia.
