Salt diapirs bordering the continental margin of northern Kenya - southern Somalia

Rabinowitz, P.D, Coffin, M.F and Falvey, D.A., (1982) Salt diapirs bordering the continental margin of northern Kenya - southern Somalia Science, 215, (4533), pp. 663-665. (doi:10.1126/science.215.4533.663).

Record type: Article

These structures are probably a manifestation of a significant thickness of Lower Jurassic evaporites deposited during the rift and early-drift stages of the separation of Madagascar from the African continent.
