Quaternary Sediments

A thick evaporitic formation of bedded halite, gypsum, anhydrite, potassium and magnesium salts, with shell material fills the basin in the Danakil Depression. Deposits of sheetflood terraces, silt, sand and gravel are present in some locations occasionally covered by wind blown sands. Basaltic flows and related spatter cones represent Quaternary volcanic activity in the Danakil region.
