Southern Red Sea

The triple-junction of three major tectonic rifts is seen here--
one arm of the triple- junction is the Red Sea (bottom left),
another the Gulf of Aden (top left), and the third is the Great
Rift Valley of Africa which begins here as the triangular Afar
Depression of Ethiopia and Djibouti (dashed lines). The Ethiopi-
an Plateau stands out well (bottom right). (41G-32-012)
