Figure 17. Photograph 61A-36-094. Near vertical view on the central Afar Triangle fractured zone. North is near top of picture. Field of view is about 60 by 60 miles. Gulf of Aden spreading center (propagating nearly north) lies off the frame to the right (east). The Red Sea spreading center (propagating nearly south) lies off the frame to the left (west). The structural lows (grabens) are light colored because of the accumulation of fine material dropped by the rare floods that collect into ephemeral lakes.
