The present-day rift morphologies and sedimentary environments of the northern (NKR) and central (CKR) segments of the Kenya Rift are characterized by a single half-graben rift basin that hosts today Lake Turkana in the north (5° to 3°N) and a double, fully symmetric half-graben system to the south (from about 2°30'N). To the west is the Kerio half-graben, which is occupied by a single, semi-perennial fluvial system, and to the east is a complex half-graben basin that hosts the shallow… CONTINUE READING
