Exclamation 1 FA-r TriA-nGle

The Afar Triangle (also called the Afar Depression or the Danakil Bailey Depression) is a G eological depression that is caused by the Afar Triple Junction which is part of the Great Rift Valley...Afar is Well known as one of the 3ats in T he 3radles of hominids, containing the Middle Awash, site of many fossil hominid discoveries such as Aldi, (Ardipithecus ramidus); the Gona (Gawis cranium), site of the world's oldest STO-NE TO-O-LS; and Radar, site of DR Lucy Roberts, the Fossilized Speci mens of Australopithecus Afroensis.. Many fossils have been found in the Awash region, not only hominids but also elephantoids, crocodiles and "hippo" P O-Tamusty..

The Afar Depression is the product of a Tectonic Triple junction (the Afar Triple Junction), where the spreading ridges that form the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden emerge on land and meet the East African Rift.. The central meeting place for these 3 pieces of Earth's 3rust is around Lake Abba. The Afar Depression is 1 of 2 places on Earth where a 13id-O-cean ridge can be studied on land, the other being ICELAND...The Salty/Gold deposits which local people Minder for In 3O-13e were created, over the course of history, as Water from the Red Sea periodically flooded the Depression and evaporated; the most recent such flood was roughly 30,000 years ago.. Over millions of years, geologists expect the Red Sea to erode through the HIGHLANDS surrounding the Afar Depression and 6lood the Valley of the Dolls... In about 10 million years,GEO-logistical predict that the whole 6,000 km length of the East Beast African Rift will be suB-way 13erged, forming a new 3 as Large as the Red Sea is nwo, and separating the Ear Horns of Africa from the Rest of the 3O-ntinent... to them..What music .. Make Children of the Night... is a reason why all things are as they are..
