Abstract:
The geology of five sedimentary units outcropping west of Lake Barinjo in the Kenya Rift Valley is presented. The units range in age from mid-Miocene (about 13 million years) to late-Miocene (about 5 million years). Regional geological mapping has resulted in the determination of the stratigraphic relationships of the sediments, which have been calibrated by radiometric techniques Faunal studies confirm the mid-to late-Miocene ages of the sediments suggested by radiometric age determinations on intercalated lavae. A succession of vertebrate faunas over this time span is presented.
