This paper describes the sedimentology and paleobotany of a Late Oligocene (27.36 ± 0.11 Ma) succession of volcaniclastic strata from the Margargaria River region, northwestern Ethiopian Plateau. Sedimentology indicates fluvial deposition of clayand silt-rich strata during the early sedimentary phases, whereas organic-rich deposits and massive and fluvially-reworked ash layers are increasingly more common in the middle and upper parts of the succession, respectively. Periods of interrupted… CONTINUE READING
