Rift! Geologic clues to what’s tearing Africa apart
David Hilton, geochemist
East Africa is one of the most geologically intriguing places on the planet – a place where the African continent is literally ripping apart. Deep rift valleys, active volcanoes, and hot springs are dramatic evidence for the powerful forces deep within the Earth that are slowly reshaping the continent. Join geochemist David Hilton as he takes us on an adventure to the East African Rift Valley and describes how he and his colleagues utilize geologic samples to understand this dynamic region of our planet.
