Quaternary geology and geomorphology in the Albertine rift valley, Uganda


Quaternary geology and geomorphology in the Albertine rift valley, Uganda



Pages 293-321 1965



"The Kisegi-Wasa area north of the fault 'nose' of Ruwenzori exposes late Tertiary sediments that grade upward without angular discordance into a thick conformable series of gently dipping lacustrine deposits (Kaiso series) which yield abundant mollusk and fish fossils but few mammal fossils. The mammals are typical of shallow-water conditions and include species recorded from the lower Villafranchian of north Africa. Higher in the sequence occur forms that range through the upper Villafranchian, whereas the uppermost Kaiso sediments may be mid-Pleistocene. They are overlain unconformably by unfossiliferous later Pleistocene deposits. Morphological mapping reveals an intricate network of late Pleistocene grid faults associated with upthrust of the Ruwenzori block. In sharp contrast with the Kisegi-Wasa area, the Murchison Falls area has experienced a stable Quaternary history. Late grid faults and typical Kaiso deposits are absent. The boundary faults of the graben have been at least partly buried by sediments, and they stand as escarpments only where exhumed by differentiated erosion.".
