Background:

The Korath Range is an isolated group of tuff cones and lava flows in southern Ethiopia that were erupted along the Turkana Rift, which extends north from Kenya. About 20 tuff cones occupy the Korath Range, many of which issued lava flows from their flanks that traveled up to about 5 km. The apparent youngest flow issued from the central crater and flowed through a breach in its rim. The absolute age of the dominantly basanitic-tephritic lava flows is unknown, but a shell adhering to the youngest flow was radiocarbon dated at 7900 years before present (BP) (Brown et al., 1969). Davidson (1983) indicated an age for the Korath Range between 30,000 BP and 7900-9500 BP.
