Background:

Alkaline volcanism continued into the Pleistocene in the Tafna Beni Saf (2.7-1.4 Ma) and Aïn Temouchent (1.28-0.82 Ma) areas along the Mediterranean Sea coast of NW Algeria (Coulon et al., 2002). This volcano is a member of the Neogene-Pleistocene Oranie Volcanic Field, which covers an area of about 2000 km2 and has a total volume of about 200 km3. The volcanic products generally consist of alkaline basalts, and mantle xenoliths are also present (Doblas et al., 2007; Maury et al., 2000; Liegeois et al., 2005).
